More About This Title Twisted Agendas


A highly topical novel about terrorism influenced by the author's childhood in 1960s/1970s Northern Ireland

Desperate to escape his predetermined existence, Danny decides to break out from life in Northern Ireland, and move to London. He then meets Piper, a friendly and outgoing American girl on a quest of her own. Two very different worlds are thrown together as Danny is willingly absorbed into unfamiliar territory. However, the Hammersmith Bridge is then bombed, Piper disappears without a trace, and Danny finds himself the center of a police investigation, hounded by whispers of the IRA. Dark, yet humorous, Danny and Piper’s story is one of dysfunctional parenting, clashing motives, and 20-somethings negotiating love and big city life.
