The Break – Description

The Break
A post-apocalyptic thriller by Richard Blake
Published 28th April 2016 by Caffeine Nights

It's Wednesday the 7th March 2018 – in the mainland UK. Everywhere else, it's June 1065.

No one knows what caused The Break eleven months ago, but there's no sign of its end. England is settling into its new future a reindustrialising concentration camp. The rest of the world is watching…waiting…curious…

Jennifer thinks her family survived The Hunger because of their smuggling business – tampons and paracetamol to France, silver back to England. Little does she know what game her father was really playing, as she recrosses the Channel from an Impromptu mission of her own. Little can she know how her life has already been torn apart.

Who has taken Jennifer's parents? Where are they? What is the Home Secretary up to with the Americans? Why is she so desperate to lay hands on Michael? Will Jesus Christ return to Earth above Oxford Circus? When will the "Doomsday Project" go live?

Can the Byzantine Empire and the Catholic Church take on the British State, and win?

All will be answered – if Jennifer can stay alive in a post-apocalyptic London terrorised by cannibals, by thugs in uniform, and by motorbike gangs of Islamic suicide bombers.
