Synopsis

Bombmaker by Claire McFall

Britain is in economic crisis and the English government have closed the borders with their Celtic neighbours. Any Celt found in England is branded with a tattoo, found twice they are executed. Scottish Lizzie is the ‘property’ of psychopathic London gang boss Alexander. Used as his bombmaker, she is under his protection, but also at his complete disposal. Can Lizzie escape Alexander’s deadly grip and at what price her betrayal?

About the Author

Claire McFall

Claire McFall grew up just south of Glasgow in the heart of Celtic and Rangers country, and she now teaches English to teenagers in Peebles, Scotland where she lives.

Claire's work is, in essence, all about first love and difficult decisions. Her novels take romantic narratives and engaging characters and hurl them into unusual and extreme settings. She then explores her characters’ reactions to these unfamiliar situations and the new and confusing feelings that beset them in a hyper-real, engaging, deeply poignant and literary manner. She is fascinated by teenagers and what makes them tick and by the transforming power of love.
