A Plague of Dissent by Nic Taylor is a damning indictment to British politics and the country as a whole Seedy politicians, corrupt journalists, terrorists, media moguls who believe they have the right to tap the entire nation s phones, all have a play in this fast paced plot driven novel And one may ask is this fact or fiction, and this reader s assumption would be fact based on recent events The Sex Pistols summed this book up with their single Anarchy in the UK and to be honest they were far innocent than the politicians depicted in this book.
If you like expose type novels, riotous action, seedy characters all looking to make money off someone else s misfortune then this is the book for you, with the murder of those who know too much as easy to dispel as taking aspirin for a headache.
This is a FIVE STAR political thriller and is highly recommended.
This book was fabulous I loved the way the author Nic Taylor put together this tale of politcal and media corruption It could be reality This book had me hooked from the beginning when Rose is found in a uncompromising position with a MP, her death being questioned as a suiside by those around her.
A book with some real humph This book is really Compelling.
Gave up on this, not something I often do but it was so disjointed I really didn t care what was going to happen next or to whom Having read the other reviews maybe I ve been a bit harsh but it doesn t sound we ve been reading the same book The idea of A Plague of Dissent is an interesting one Seemingly based off of the phone hacking scandal in the UK of several years ago, the media is monitoring communications in order to garner headlines Leading the race with a lot on his plate is a man named Jonathan who has been contracted to get certain blackmail worthy material on public officials The story opens with a young woman he has set up to sleep with a politician to gain pictures that would be embarrassing should they get out running from the press At the start, I was really excited about where this novel would go.
As the story progressed the excitement waned This is a deeply complex story at the start of conspiracy and corruption The story transitions to Adam Young He s a bit of a romantic he falls for Isobel, another man s wife, pretty quick and super hot When his appendix ruptures, the unprofessional thoughts of the nurse undressing him are read to the audience That is as good as any example where a story that really could have and should have been excellent goes a little off of the rails for this reader Extraneous information leads the story to drag To further the slowing of the story line there s a whole lot of telling and not so much showing There are readers who prefer the style but I find that telling disconnects us from the action The above may give a reader the idea that this was a terrible novel It wasn t Once we got beyond the top heavy exposition to the point where the story line was direct, the action was involved and interesting As I said at the start of the review, this plot line was a very good idea Taylor employs quite a lot of misdirection so that A Plague of Dissent is a rather difficult novel to describe to fellow readers without conveying spoilers A Plague of Dissent appears to be Taylor s first novel that would make it somewhat of an outstanding outing There are editing errors but they are few I may have been given an ARC of the novel and generally speaking the character development and story line while weighty are well constructed Taylor includes an excerpt of his next novel, Gaia s Warriors, and the taste is compelling and interesting and also a novel that I will pick up simply to see what he does with the characters as they progress.
A Plague of DissentbyNic TaylorA fast paced thriller, bursting with political intrigue and corruption It paints a picture of the UK, where media companies hack into personal communications at will, in search of their next headline Of politicians lining their pockets with falsified expense claims and crooked practices operate within the police force Where government contracts can be bought and sold by those that have the Prime Ministers ear, that to, on sale for the right price and where banks and corporations make millions at the expense of the man in the street.
A story of greed and corruption where riots and civil unrest are turning the country upside down and a small group of men attempting to use this anarchy that is spreading across the country to further their own agendas.
Into this nightmare scenario are dragged a young man Adam, his girl friend Isobel and his brother Dan a professional rugby player and England wing forward They are pursued by the faceless men who believe they are party to information that could compromise their mission and have two choices, to run or, to turn and fight for their lives.
This is not the type of book I usually read, but I enjoyed it It was a little slow for me to get into, but if you hang in there you re sure to enjoy the story too This is the first book I ve read by this author but I m sure it won t be the last.
I rate this book 3 1 2 starsJennifer Wadkinsjuliesbookreview.

com Nic Taylor s A Plague of Dissent Be Scared, Be Very Scared Don t let the title of my review put you off No, Nic Taylor s A Plague of Dissent is not a horror book although I love horror books At least not a horror genre book What the title refers to is the slow realisation whilst reading the novel that it is not only topical and the socio historical events described very close to the bone, but the fictional elements are than plausible Although one might have a different opinion as to some of the premises who organises the terrorist attacks and their reasons, for example , the actual details and planning of it sound incredibly convincing and the horrifying for it The author is well versed in British current affairs and he uses them to create a multilayered background to his fictional we hope story Recent big news items phone hacking scandal and enquiry, riots, allegations of child pornography, coalition government are not only background setting of the novel but become an integral part of the plot, and they are seamlessly woven together to create a complex and realistic tapestry I live in the UK and must say some of the incidents and situations made me chuckle.
The novel is extremely well plotted and even minor incidents that at first sight might appear insignificant are eventually relevant and their significance revealed A woman accidentally run over by a car, a man caught up in the riots and injured, a rugby training session everything falls into place like a well oiled machine We get to know the main characters gradually, and they reveal themselves to be not only likeable, but also true heroes Adam is a fantastic protagonist, who goes from being maligned by the media in an attempt at revenge by a jealous husband, to risking his life to save well, everybody His brother, Dan, Ron, his friend and special agent, Isobel, his love interest, the few honest detectives and policemen, are all real people you can relate to but make a larger than life cast who can take on any situation You would want them by your side in a moment of crisis A Plague is cinematic in its style, moving with ease from sweeping takes that quickly provide a general view of the national and international situation and the consequences of the events narrated, to minute takes of details such as weaponry, computer files and medication The pace accelerates and you become gripped by the events, at once thrilled and worried as to what would happen if it were real Would there be enough honest members of the police, and concerned citizens like Adam and friends to halt such a terrorist ploy I don t want to give away too many of the details of the novel as not to spoil the many surprises, but I won t hesitate in recommending it to anybody who enjoys well plotted thrillers, conspiracy theory based stories, current affairs not only British but international , spy novels In summary, anybody who loves a good book I was pleased to read that Nic Taylor is planning to follow A Plague with at least two novels I for one can t wait I was provided with a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
