In the future, The State is ruled by the socially reformist Central Party Alliance. Poverty and homelessness have been eradicated, but overpopulation, an energy crisis and an ongoing overseas war are threatening the stability of the country. When a local politician is assassinated, Detective Danny Samson finds himself thrust into the middle of the investigation. Still grieving for his dead wife and children, Danny tracks down the assassin, an ex-military sniper called Gabriella, only to discover she may not be the real villain. The secret behind the murder of one politician may bring down the entire ruling Party, and Danny soon learns those in power will go to any lengths to protect The State. Joining forces with Gabriella and the mysterious government agent Phillips, Danny must unearth the truth and bring the guilty to justice, before they catch up with him first.

I live in East Kilbride, near Glasgow in Scotland, where I spend most all my time raising my twin son and daughter. In my spare time I work as an editor of television programmes for the BBC. When I’m not doing either of those things I write stories, read stories and watch stories.
The main purpose of this blog is to post my fiction writing. In the past I have reviewed films and books and I may carry on doing the occasional bit of that too. Thanks for taking the time to read anything, all comments, shares and likes are welcome and I hope you enjoy.
Here’s an interview I gave about my writing and blogging: Interview With Iain Kelly
And here’s a fun / bizarre / surreal interview I gave to some hamsters: Interview with the Television Editor.
