What is the half-life of a secret?
Arriving at midlife with a string of failed jobs behind him, Anthony Fahey knows he’s lucky to be given a last chance as a radiation monitor at Her Majesty's Naval Base Clyde, where Britain’s Trident nuclear weapons are kept.
Already struggling to keep his marriage together after the death of his wife’s father, Anthony finds himself at the centre of an emergency when an accident on a Trident submarine throws the base into crisis.
But as the situation worsens old memories and buried secrets from his childhood reach into the present, and Anthony begins to understand that it isn’t only radiation that has a half-life.
Inspired by real events, The Chernobyl Privileges is a searing psychological drama that depicts the traumatic experience of surviving disaster. Both heart-warming and tragic, it explores the consequences of decisions we are forced to make and that shape our lives.
"...a compelling, well-wrought and sharply intelligent book."
