+++ Virtual Assassin +++

A novel about personal responsibility in a corrupt society …

Virtual Assassin
is a tense thriller with powerful political and moral implications from new author Simon Kearns. It tracks the story of successful young graphic designer, Lee Coller, sickened with the Iraq war and the no-regrets position of Tony Blair. When he hears a VIP is about to visit his office, he obsesses it might be Blair and chalks out a plan of revenge. But will Blair visit after all? And will Lee do the unthinkable? Can one act of violence make up for so many others?

Brilliant cover, Simon, and great opening - it's been tightened since I last read it and I'm looking forward to seeing how the rest of the book has changed since its autho days.

(paying customers queueing up... this is what it's all about, eh?!)

Great cover. I like. The slab of text across the middle reminds me of the design of the old Penguins. Sort of a contemporary-classic sandwich. You picked a Blair with a particularly punchable mouth too. Nice work. Look forward to being able to buy a copy.

Great cover. Simple and arresting. Reminds me of those old 'New Labour. New Danger' posters, which have become political design classics. Just as your book deserves to become a classic in political literature. Looking forward to being able to buy it.

yeah, instant classic design, excellent fit to the content.

the opening reads punchily too, good stuff all round and fully deserving to be a zeitgeisty election year hit.
