The Novel

If you have enjoyed the rest of this blog, you may be interested in my novel:


A new Prime Minister committed to scrapping Britain’s nuclear deterrent – a Russian president meddling in other countries’ elections and an isolationist in the White House…
Does any of this sound familiar?
John Passmore’s prescient novel, written in the 1980’s and set in what was then the future, suddenly becomes terrifyingly relevant today.
As NATO collapses and Russia looks to the West, the future of the world rests in the hands of a submarine captain, his aged father, an old-fashioned reporter and a government secretary in love with a man who is not what he seems…

“Fast-moving and immensely prescient, there are echoes of the early works of Ken Follett and Frederick Forsyth.” – Daily Mail

  • Hello John, I have just listened to you on the radio, brilliant. I have just bought your book, hope that helps you. Keep sailing I admire your approach. Keep safe. Kind regards Ian Mittell. If you have time have a look at me on Facebook.

    • Thank you for your kind words, Ian – and thank you for buying the book. Oddly enough I have just been contacted by a literary agent with a view to turning the adventure into another.
