The Kingfisher Secret by anon

Ripped from the headlines and inspired by tales, speculation and whispers from within the intelligence community, The Kingfisher Secret focuses on THE issue of today.

On the eve of the 2016 American election, journalist Grace Elliott has been working tirelessly on a story involving the controversial and wealthy tycoon who is running for President of the United States, and a former porn star who is ready to go public with details of their affair. Yet, for political reasons, the publication that Grace works for decides to bury the story. She is then sent to Europe to resume her work as a ghostwriter for the candidate’s ex-wife, a no-nonsense Czech businesswoman who “writes” a column for the publication. Grace soon stumbles on a shocking story about how the man who is about to be president has made it as far as he has, and the threat his election victory poses to the western world. 

Selina Walker, Publisher of Century and Arrow on the anonymity of the author:
‘This is a story that had to be told. I realised straightaway not only how explosive the book could be, but also that our anonymous author and his secret source were at personal risk, and that we had to protect them. The journey to publication has been extraordinary: communication through secure apps, password-protected material, and a flight to Canada to meet the author in absolute secrecy.

‘A gripping, hugely intriguing conspiracy thriller that has at its heart the origins of a tangled, toxic international relationship that consumes us all.'

The Kingsfisher Secret will be published in the UK on 18 October and is available for pre-order now.

    What if the President of the United States is a foreign intelligence asset?

    It’s October 2016. A loud, brash businessman with a history of shady dealings and sexual misbehaviour is a serious contender to win the presidency. Even a porn star’s credible allegations don’t seem to slow him down.

    But his most dangerous secrets may be hidden behind the former Iron Curtain.

    Journalist Grace Elliot is dispatched to Europe, hot on the trail of a story so big it could blow up the entire election – if she can stay alive long enough to tell it:

    The man who might become President was married to a Czech woman with a beguiling and contradictory past, no records, and no history – and who has all the hallmarks of a Soviet intelligence asset.

    Her codename is Kingfisher.
    And her mission is almost complete…
