David Carterabout this book: Hello to you wherever you may be, and thanks for stopping by.
Today I want to briefly talk about my new book, "The Inconvenient Unborn".
"The Inconvenient Unborn" is set in England in the near future, though it is a quite different England from today. It tells the story of two competing families, the Cazenoves and the Wilsons.
To put it mildly they don't get along. They come from different strata of society, they have different politics, different standards of living, different aspirations, in fact "different" could well sum them up in a single word.
And the hostility between them isn't helped because Donald Cazenove just happens to be Freddie Wilson's boss. Fred is the senior shop steward, and not without influence himself, and he's not averse to provoking industrial unrest when needed.
Both families boast three teenage children they are naturally enough incredibly proud of, and if the adults can't and won't get along, the kids absolutely adore each other, and when one of the Wilson girls falls pregnant, sparks fly. The unrest and distrust and hostility between the adults deepens further.
Add to that, a state visit by the most powerful man on the planet, the Russian President, Yuri Premakov, and his glamorous film star wife, Tamara, and that brings a whole new dimension to the entire story.
So in the end who wins out? The Cazenove family or the Wilson clan, and what exactly is Yuri Premakov up to in Britain? "The Inconvenient Unborn" will take you on a roller coaster ride you can barely imagine.
This is what Margaret Henderson Smith, author of Amber and Ne Obliviscaris wrote about "The Inconvenient Unborn" -
"Carter is a highly astute observer bringing credibility to his work. The reading of this book proved sheer entertainment. He delivers an easy style which is very clever, and the comfortable occasional narration truly brings the characters to life. It's not difficult to enjoy David Carter's books whatever the genre, as long as you can deal with the shocking, for he will never leave the reader lacking in anticipation or excitement. An excellent book which deserves to be read. I can but highly recommend it."
Margaret is someone I have never met, and this is NOT a paid for review. I can only thank Margaret for her very kind words. Incidentally, you can read the full review on my website at www.davidcarterbooks.co.uk if you'd like to see more of that.
Twists and turns, power, jealousy, betrayal, politics, adolescent yearnings, family loyalties, selfish egos, murder and mayhem, it has it all!
"The Inconvenient Unborn" is out in now in paperback and as an ebook. 350 pages. It will keep you quiet and hopefully entertained for quite some time.
Thank you for checking out my latest book, and for your time.
I do hope you'll read more.
