Book Summary

In a future built on greed and mistruths, an honest man faces a choice: risk everything for what he knows to be right or hide behind a lie.

Corporal Rick Franklin is a model soldier, devoted to his wife and young daughter. While stationed on his country’s restless border, he makes a tragic mistake and becomes a reluctant hero for a president who is soon overthrown. As the country of Ailan balances on the knife-edge of chaos, Rick accepts the help of a former lover to ensure his family's safety. In doing so, he stumbles across the murderous truth behind the Silk Revolution. It pulls him into the dark heart of the government and a betrayal that cuts him to the core.

Set in a future with parallels to life in the 21st century, A Father’s Choice is the prequel to The Misrule series. Part political thriller, part dystopian fiction, part tragic love story, it is a compelling, morally ambiguous tale from British author Andy Graham that will appeal to readers who enjoyed books such as Divergent, The Handmaid’s Tale, 1984 and The Left Hand of Darkness.

"Andy Graham steps firmly into the arena of writers of the genre that seems to grow daily in its appeal to all readers who long to dismiss the meaningless chaos that crowds our lives at the moment." Five stars - G. Harp - Hall of Fame/ Top 100 Reviewer/ Vine Voice (Amazon US)

About the Author

Andy Graham is a British author currently living in the Czech Republic who will now stop talking about himself in the third person because it's odd.

I have two main collections of books: The Misrule is a series of dystopian political thrillers set in an alternate world based on life in 21st century EU/ US. I also have an expanding collection of dark fiction tales that explore the creepier side of life, death and the undead.

There are a few unfinished stories rattling around in my hard-drive and some unstarted ones knocking around in my head. They range from disposable airport fiction and YA sci fi to grimdark epics, but they will have to wait their turn. (Unfortunately for my wife, who is waiting for me to write something 'nice', preferably with sparkly vampires.)

Outside of reading and writing, I'm a musician, qualified osteopath, seasoned insomniac, and father to two young kids who have too much energy to let me grow old gracefully.
