A SINGLE SOURCE

Topical, authoritative and gripping’ Charles Cumming ‘Tight, pacy and strong on atmosphere’ Michael Palin ‘Completely unputdownable – gripping’ Seb Emina ‘Compelling’ Mishal Husain ‘Draws you in from the first line and keeps you guessing until, literally, the very last’ Allan Little ‘Thrilling’ Dame Ann Leslie ‘The real deal’ Kirsty Wark ‘Gut-wrenching’ Edward Stourton

Veteran BBC reporter William Carver is in Cairo, bang in the middle of the Arab Spring. ‘The only story in the world’ according to his editor. But it isn’t.

There’s another story, more significant and potentially more dangerous, and if no one else is willing to tell it, then Carver will – whatever the consequences.

A Single Source tells two stories, which over a few tumultuous months come together to prove inextricably linked. There are the dramatic, world-changing events as protests spread across North Africa and the Middle East , led by a new generation of tech-savvy youngsters challenging the corrupt old order. And then there are two Eritrean brothers , desperate enough to risk everything to make their way across the continent to a better life in Europe.

The world is watching, but its attention span is increasingly short. Carver knows the story is a complex one and, in the age of Facebook, Twitter and rolling news, difficult stories are getting harder to tell. If everyone is a reporter, then who do you believe?

*Praise for Peter Hanington’s A Dying Breed, which first featured William Carver*

‘Wholly compelling and shrewdly wise’ William Boyd ‘A belting good read’ A.L. Kennedy
‘I look forward to more of Hanington’s work with great expectations’ Melvyn Bragg
‘Enthralling’ Michael Palin ‘Thoughtful, atmospheric and grippingly plotted’ Guardian
‘ Hanington has true talent’ The Times
