Do spin-doctors control Peter Conway’s thoughts? If so, can he stop them – and how will he know whether he succeeded?
Young photographer Peter Conway wrestles with his estranged father’s collapse into madness and his fear that he has inherited the same fatal flaw. Then his father’s apparent suicide and an inner compulsion he does not fully understand drive Peter to re-examine events of the past that destroyed his family.
As he digs deeper, his father’s obsession about a shadowy organisation that controls how people think becomes all too convincing. Unsure who to trust or whether his thoughts are still his own, Peter’s nightmare of insanity seems to be coming true.
Now certain his father was murdered and he is next on the list, Peter finds help from journalist Chloe Pearson and City financier Billy Stanfield. Together they unravel a web of scientific, political and financial power masquerading as innocuous ‘spin’.
Insanity is no longer the issue – it has become a question of survival for both the hunters and the hunted.
