‘Tension, trouble and tough truths – Gillian Slovo has written a cracker’ Val McDermid
A page-turner thick with greed, ambition, love and secrets’ Kamila Shamsie
It’s 4 a.m. and dawn is about to break over the Lovelace estate.
Cathy Mason drags herself out of bed as she swelters in her overheated bedroom – the council still haven’t turned the radiators off despite temperatures reaching the 30s.
In a kitchen across London, Home Secretary Peter Whiteley enjoys the tea that his security detail left for him before he joins his driver and heads to Parliament, whilst his new police chief, Joshua Yares, clears his head for his first day with a run.
All three will have reasons to recollect this morning as their lives collide over ten days they will never forget.
Ten Days takes an unflinching look at how lives are ruined and careers are made when small misjudgements have profound effects on frustrated communities and damaged individuals. Gillian Slovo’s game-changing novel about political expediency and personal disenfranchisement is as page-turning as it is culturally significant.
