Game Ten

By James Long

A thriller on the cutting edge; a conspiracy that could just be true.

In a well-guarded scrap-yard, fifty miles from London, a crushed car marks the last resting place of British democracy – in its boot the box that gives the game away.

In a Californian desert, Freedom’s Friends, the world’s most powerful and secret club, is celebrating another victory – the fixing of a British election.

Battle-hardened TV reporter Claire Merrick is the point of collision. When she gets too close to the truth buried in the scrap-yard, she finds herself turning from hunter to hunted – with a price on her head and on her heels the police, the public and the killers who protect the sinister games of Freedom’s Friends.

James Long was born in Sussex in 1949. After university he went into journalism on a London newspaper. In 1974 he joined the BBC reporting for radio news. He then switched to television and became a TV news correspondent. He played a major part in uncovering details of the Guinness scandal and in chasing President Marco’s missing millions. He then helped to start up a pan-European TV channel which exposed a huge drug-money laundering scandal. During his broadcasting career he has been interrogated by the Indonesian Secret Police, deliberately run down by a Cadillac in America and held by the Venezuelan Army. He now lives with his wife and three children on the edge of Dartmoor, making investigative documentaries as well as writing. He is the author of Hard News and Collateral Damage.
