Bob Grant, former football hooligan, now the charismatic leader of the Britain s Great party (slogan: Britain s Great! End of!) has swept to power on a populist tide. With his itchy finger hovering over the nuclear trigger, Bob presides over a brave new Britain where armed drones fill the skies, ex-bankers and foreigners are vilified, and the Millwall football chant No one likes, we don t care has become an unofficial national anthem. Meanwhile, Bob s under-achieving, Guardian-reading brother Zack gets a tap on the shoulder from a shady Whitehall mandarin. A daring plot is afoot to defy the will of the people and unseat the increasingly unstable PM. Can Zack stop his brother before he launches a nuclear strike on Belgium? And just what is ACERBIC, Britain s most closely-guarded military secret? A darkly comic political thriller, Time of Lies is also a terrifyingly believable portrait of an alternative Britain. It couldn t happen here... could it?
In the morning of Tuesday November 10, 1942, near a small village in SW France, the scheduled pickup for a Special Operations Executive agent goes terribly wrong. Alex and Justine, agents with a life expectancy measured in weeks, find themselves entangled in a desperate project they never fully understand. They are also lovers. Trained to lie to their wartime masters and to the enemy, they must contemplate lying to each other. A Time to Tell Lies, Alan Kennedy's fifth novel, continues the story begun in Lucy, described by Deborah Swallow, Marit Rausing Director, Courtauld Institute of Art, as: "A haunting and captivating love story ... a skilfully articulated plot which holds the reader from start to finish. At its heart is the exploration of the young artist's creative imagination as she struggles to come to terms with the banal horrors of war and her own engulfing emotions."

Why are facts and statistics disparaged and dismissed, now more than ever? Why do people trust 'fake news'? If we have 'had enough of experts' who should we listen to? Rather than the possible collapse of modern society, could this be an opportunity to look at not just society but our own lives in a different way? Whoever controls the narrative is the one who is in control. Time’s Lie analyses the history, the science and the philosophy behind the creation of linear stories, or Narrativisation, as this book dubs it. 'The importance of understanding how we frame the world through story cannot be overstated. Leo has tapped into something really profound with Time's Lie.' Jared Bauer, Wisecrack
