Who is Dominion 1431?

And why shoot the PM? 60 million suspects. Only one culprit.

Eduard Foxx, secret agent, traitor and the tactician who planned the assassination, meets his match in Julie Connor, a quiet, unexceptional, self-deprecating, reclusive civil servant with a secret.

For their own reasons, they each need to uncover the identity of Dominion 1431, the shadowy figure behind the assassination and unravel a complex plot to change the course of history. But nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted in the convoluted world of political intrigue.

Foxx and Connor find themselves in a race to stop the destruction of democracy . . . or are they already too late?

My Take on the Book:

I really appreciated the writing style in this book. There were one or two plot twists that made me do a double take. I wasn’t the hugest fan of Lesley O’ Halloran.

I ended up giving this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:

I think this author could become a good contemporary writer if he ever wanted to switch genres – he has good and engaging descriptions.
