'Two decades of social media had prepared them well for UK2.'
The pace steps up in this final instalment of the Project Renova trilogy, as the survivors' way of life comes under threat.
Two years after the viral outbreak, representatives from UK Central arrive at Lindisfarne to tell the islanders about the shiny new city being created down south. UK2 governor Verlander's plan is simple: all independent communities are to be dissolved, their inhabitants to reside in approved colonies. Alas, those who relocate soon suspect that the promises of a bright tomorrow are nothing but smoke and mirrors, as great opportunities turn into broken dreams, and dangerous journeys provide the only hope of freedom.
Meanwhile, far away in the southern hemisphere, a new terror is gathering momentum...
'I walked through that grey afternoon, past fields that nobody had tended for nearly three years, past broken down, rusty old vehicles, buildings with smashed windows. I was walking alone at the end of the world, but I was a happy man. I was free, at last.'
Please note: although this is the promised end of the trilogy, I haven't finished with all these characters and this world yet. There will be more! There are some side stories I want to write, and I'm planning another novel set far into the future, too.
The other books in the Project Renova series have 85 x 5* reviews across the series, on Amazon UK (others on Goodreads).

It's summer 2024, and everyone is signing up for Private Life, the great new social media site. Meanwhile, news reports tell of a strange new virus on a quiet death march across the African continent. A countrywide vaccination programme is introduced ~ but who will be the first to receive the vaccine?
When the first UK case is reported in the quiet Norfolk seaside town of Shipden, no one realises that it heralds the beginning of the end.
Survivors find a safe haven on the Northumbrian tidal island, but soon discover that lack of food is not their only problem, as they come to terms with the reality of a lawless society.
