In 2038 the kingdom is no longer united. The government rules from York after Southern England was lost to anarchy twenty years previously.
Chief Whip Oliver Trench is trying to keep his government from falling apart, uncovering a corporate plot looking to usurp the Prime Minister, one which will test his loyalties between his friend, the PM and his country.
Strategist Evan Bell has an opportunity to unite the kingdom. But when a Red Cross transport is shot down it ignites hostilities between the city’s gangs. His mission doomed, Evan finds hope in an unlikely ally; Bo, a 13 year old assassin.
Evan and Oliver must navigate the war torn streets of London, the unravelling of Britain’s government and a shadowy corporation’s play for dominance. The odds are against them, but in London a child is about to make a difference.

"Gunboy is a rare example of a completely plausible near future techno thriller fast paced, brutal, uncompromising; and brilliantly written."
Simon Marshall-Jones, author of Biblia Longcrofta.
"One of the most gripping techno-thrillers written in recent decades. Dean rips the guts out of most new authors around. The story is a plausible near future, given the political decisions that have been made in recent months. It tells of a future that is possibly not so far from our own, which adds a terrifying aspect to the story. The action is fast paced and feels real, with Evan the idealistic desk job hacker thrown into the middle of a dystopian London. Bo a young boy so full of aggression. Totally gripping, totally page turning. Absolutely could not put it down. A superior novel. A must read."
