: Trapped behind barbed wire in an alien land, a man used to guarding his secrets is compelled to set the record straight ... Imagine a faraway country that was once a friend of the West becoming the enemy, its people isolated and savagely repressed by a tyrant known as The Great Uncle. As one of the countryâs most celebrated writers and a war hero, the storyteller has a better life than most â until he is made an offer he canât refuse. He must write a great novel, telling of the suffering of his people under the enemyâs cruel economic sanctions and portraying The Great Uncle as their saviour. This masterpiece must be completed in time for its international debut in three months â or else. If the writer cannot â or will not â meet the tyrantâs deadline, he and anyone he cares for will pay the ultimate price. Stark, terrifying and utterly compelling, The Tyrantâs Novel is both a gripping thriller and a chilling glimpse of a fictional world that seems all too real.
