Urban Scarecrows Summary

Urban Scarecrows by Jim Chambers

The Labour Party election victory of 2019 ushers into power a radical socialist government which swiftly mutates to a British form of totalitarian Marxism in its quest for social justice and equality. Dominic Green, a Labour Party activist and celebrity chef, is caught up in the economic and social crisis as the country lurches towards civil war. Taunted by the jibes of his volatile Spanish wife, Rosa, he moves from denial to acceptance to opposition and becomes a totemic media figure in the struggles. His marriage is in terminal decline; Rosa cannot forgive his philandering or his support of the government. His family falls apart as Rosa leaves him and one son is incarcerated, whilst the other attempts to liberate his sibling. Labelled a turncoat terrorist he is hunted by the brutal SNPS state police whose attempts to subjugate the population includes 'urban scarecrowing'. Who can he trust as he goes on the run whilst assisting the resistance movement? Will Rosa forgive him as she tracks his public pronouncements and his efforts to free their son? Will Dominic escape the clutches of the SNPS as the net closes? Will international outrage translate into military intervention as sections of the armed forces rebel? And can Dominic survive and recover his relationship with Rosa and their surviving son?

About Jim Chambers

Jim Chambers emanates from Derby in the East Midlands and is the eldest of three born to Dick and Barbara. His working-class roots are a source of pride, his father an enduring point of reference, the person Jim has most admired in life. But the world of butchery was not for him. Instead he opted for business, subsequently enjoying a career in the education technology market where he became a CEO in technology and training businesses and then non-executive chairman in ed-tech companies. Now more time rich walking and writing are his passions - perfect bed fellows. The 'Paradigm Shift' novel was self-published in 2013, and foretold the Brexit outcome years before any referendum had even been mooted. Then 'The Hope Affair' was published in April 2021 and 'Urban Scarecrows' follows in 2022. Jim is a long-term Derby County fan stretching back to the glory days of Brian Clough's and then Dave Mackay's championship winning sides of the 1970's.Jim lives in the Peak District of Derbyshire and is a family man who has been married to Barbara for over forty years. They have four offspring: Nicola, Andrew, Christopher, and Elizabeth and, at last count, four grandchildren.
