England in the near future –

Though you may not like what you see.

The Cazenoves and the Wilsons don’t get along, leastways the parents don’t – the teenage kids adore each other, but when the oldest Wilson girl falls pregnant, sparks fly.

Donald Cazenove just happens to be Fred Wilson’s boss, but Fred isn’t without influence himself, being the senior shop steward, and the business is struggling anyway, and a strike could play havoc with Donald’s figures.

“The Inconvenient Unborn” is set in England in the near future where after years of austerity, a left wing Labour Party has been returned to power with a huge majority, and they now intend to change Britain forever. They have a mandate. They have conviction. They have momentum.

And then there’s a state visit to Britain by the most powerful man on the planet, Yuri Premakov, the Russian President, and his precocious and very beautiful film star wife, Tamara, bringing gifts of gas and oil and energy, at a price, and he’s scheduled to visit Lymington on the south coast, where most of this book is set.

So who wins out? The Cazenoves or the Wilsons, and what exactly are Yuri Premakov and his vast entourage up to in Britain?

“The Inconvenient Unborn” will take you on a journey you can barely imagine.

In The Inconvenient Unborn, author David Carter sketches a gritty world in the near future. The Cazenoves and Wilsons don’t get along, at least their parents don’t, but the children get along well enough. Kind of like Romeo and Juliet but set in the future, and not as grim, this is a pleasant read with some unexpected surprises.

There’s also a hint of mystery and political drama as the Russian President, Yuri Premakov, visits Lymington, bearing gifts but they come at a steep price. The focus on politics works surprisingly well. It’s hard to match the book under one genre, as it’s a bit of a mix of genres, but nonetheless very entertaining. It was different from what I expected, and if you enjoy political thrillers, I think you’ll enjoy this one too.
