Reprisals – Speculative fiction novel

Happy to have found a new genre to write in, and a great new heroine, I began the sequel to “Imperfect Isolation” in Autumn 2018 and finished the first draft about six months later.

“Reprisals” sees the consequences of the heroine’s earlier actions come back to haunt her, the huge ramifications on the fortunes of the world’s two largest companies, and with many people put in danger from revenge motives.
