Debut author Rob Murphy’s political thriller “Kingdom Come” (published by AuthorHouse) is set in the near-future, when the British government must take desperate steps to preserve the United Kingdom.
Massive oil reserves have been discovered off Scotland and Wales. Prime Minister Robert Delgado sees the opportunity to transform the U.K. into an enterprise economy. Elections for the devolved administrations in Scotland and Wales are due shortly and the government decides to delay the announcement about an oil strike until the elections have taken place, in an effort to deny nationalists the opportunity to demand independence from the union.
Less than three weeks before voting takes place, news of the oil discovery is leaked. Nationalists in Scotland and Wales exploit voters’ anger about being deceived. One Friday, the historic union comes under threat as nationalist governments take control in Scotland and Wales.
The British government’s attempts to re-assert its authority is the catalyst for violence to escalate. Long-dormant grievances between England, Scotland and Wales are reawakened as a trail of death and destruction spills into Europe and the U.S. The British government finds its friends disappearing and enemies growing. The economic bounty of the oil disappears and, once its closest ally starts to question the wisdom of its approach, the writing is on the wall.
