GIVEAWAY – 3 copies of The Final Warning – AMERICA

15th November 2020

We are delighted to be able to give away 3 copies of ‘The Final Warning‘, Peter Isdell-Carpenter’s chilling dystopian novel imagining a terrifying threat to post-Trump America.

3 copies of The Final Warning

Trump is history and a popular new President of the United States is left to protect America from a devastating new conspiracy. But can truth and security be restored in a nation now powered by greed and deception?

Peter Isdell-Carpenter’s debut novel The Final Warning – published by Zuleika – shakes up fact and fiction in an arresting and timely contemporary thriller from a master story-teller. 

Steeped in conspiracy, diverse characters and an incredibly deft knowledge of American consciousness, it is at times disturbing, at others heart-warming, at times light-hearted and at others unbelievably significant.

As an insidious plot threatens to bring the world’s most powerful country to its knees, the besieged President of the United States of America dares not reveal that American freedom is hanging by a tether. Meanwhile, young White House intern Chuck Pavel is launched terrified into the front line in a desperate effort to forestall the threat before it’s too late.

Is freedom already lost? Or is there something deeper, and far darker, going wrong between the stars and the stripes?

Peter Isdell-Carpenter’s debut novel is a must-have for anyone suffering from news exhaustion, who wonders how it will all end, and what might be next for the fracturing West. The Final Warning is as shocking as it is plausible and will leave you open-mouthed.

    Illinois- we were in New England when the Clinton -Trump election was only weeks away. We watched one of the head to heads live whilst we were there. We travelled through five states and everywhere was vote Trump or Hilary for Prison. I’d said how scary it would be if Trump got in and I said I’d not visit if he was in power. And we haven’t and we love the states. We met some people from Illinois in the Galápagos Islands and would like to meet them on their home turf.

    I would love to take a self-drive trip to Alaska. Untouched wild corner of the world, grizzly bears and humpback whales, a rich gold-mining past.

    I’d love to visit Ohio. I’ve just reunited with my Dad after 30 years but he’s in the USA and I’m in the Uk. He voted for Trump and I’m hoping he’ll prove the votes weren’t completely legal. I’d love to be there when that happens and be with my Dad.

    San Francisco would be my first port of call, but I do feel it will be quite some time until I will feel it safe to travel there.

    I’d visit Boston – I had a few days there many years ago and loved the city, but barely scratched the surface of everything to see and do – and eat!

      Yes. I am just reading Cobble Hill which is set in Brooklyn and once one has visited all the places on Manhattan, I think it would be wonderful to visit a prober neighbourhood like Cobble Hill (It’s a real place with a shop called The Chocolate Room, now what could be better than that!)

    Sam Diego because it was where I remember meeting the nicest people and seemed the most laid back when I went on a fly drive holiday with my family in 1995!
