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.

Alex Urban

THE AUTHOR HAS CHOSEN TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS OUT OF CONCERN FOR THE SAFETY OF HIS OR HER SOURCES.


Praise for The Kingfisher Secret

“This gulp-in-one-go conspiracy thriller… has some pretty scary parallels to recent events (in fact, it’s written anonymously because the author based the story on real information from a protected source – oo-er!)”

Sunday on Sunday, Fabulous Magazine

“Eventful storytelling - Best Recent Thrillers Roundup”

Barry Forshaw, Guardian

“A tantalizing new thriller . . . there is great house-of-mirrors fun to be had.”

The Globe and Mail

“[A] suggestive thriller . . . There are lots of twists and turns, red herrings, and characters to follow . . . even when truth is stranger than fiction, this bit of fiction is satisfyingly offbeat.”

Kirkus

“[A] political thriller that is at once entertaining, frightening and thought-provoking”

Calgary Herald
