Empire State

Empire State

Nathan Jones – scarred for life by one night of horror in his Northern Irish past. And also by having the same name as a Supremes song.


Hoping for a fresh start, Nathan moves to New York but when his girlfriend leaves him,
he only has his new job for company – that of a security guard at the Empire State building. Recently acquired by a computer billionaire, the building is about to be visited by President Michael Keneally, an army of FBI men, and George Burley of Alabama, a white supremacist with the President at the top of his assassination Top Ten.


Wildly dark and wonderfully entertaining, EMPIRE STATE takes the world of politics – international, racial and sexual – and holds it hostage at the top of one of the most famous buildings on Earth.

Daily Telegraph
'A hugely enjoyable novel...blessed with a beautiful sense of irony...it's like Carl Hiaasen, Tom Wolfe, and Roddy Doyle at their best'
