Unfortunately, for Amy and Jon, theyve chosen the wrong singer at the wrong time. The Brandenburg Sect, a secret group of top Western politicians and businessmen who generally get what they want, decide Electra has to go- her subversive views are too popular with the masses. The Sect has already interfered once in Electras relationship with the heir to the British throne. Now she is dating a wealthy, powerful Saudi. Security forces under the Sects control use captured convicted murderers and terrorists to kill for their side on command. Triggers for these re-programmed assassins have been set in Electras musical recordings. Electra is close to discovering this misuse of her musical tracks when she dies in a fiery crash in a London tunnel while being chased by paparazzi. Investigations reveal a conspiracy, which Amy and Jon are determined to uncover and use in their film. They are soon marked people targeted by security services with their bank accounts frozen and identities stolen. In a race against the clock, can Amy and Jon alert the public to the truth before they too are eliminated? Or will the, not so faceless, men in black win the day?

Authors Notes: The circumstances surrounding the death of Princess Diana were nothing if not controversial. Conspiracy theories abounded from claims of Government plots too much, much more. Rumours raged after her death and the press was very keen to play up to this. Many television programmes sought to investigate the truth behind her death and although many doubts were cast on the accident, none came up with a totally satisfactory explanation to this tragedy. I always admired Diana and thought her untimely death was a great loss to society, so much so that I did some digging and investigating myself. This led me on to discover any number of claimed conspiracies out there from the death of Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon and JF Kennedy to the landing of men on the moon. It was all fascinating stuff. This gave me an idea, I wondered if it were possible to use some of these theories, fictionalise them, take them further dramatically by incorporating threads of other conspiracy claims, and weave them into a novel. When I read about the secret Bilderberg group, and the claim that they controlled the fate of the world and the experiments performed in the USA on the military in years gone by, a germ of an idea began to grow. I knew that there had been a thought provoking movie, The Manchurian Candidate on this subject but I deliberately didnt watch it until I had written my story. I saw it very recently and was literally enthralled. Electra is my idea of the music worlds counterpart to Diana. I wondered, What if...? My imagination knows no bounds and from that small seed, The Electra Conspiracy was born.
