The dramatic debut novel from the writer and creator of Brookside, Hollyoaks and Grange Hill.
Phil Redmond is best known for creating three of Britain's longest-running drama series Grange Hill, Brookside and Hollyoaks. Redmond came up with the concept for Grange Hill in 1978 and has written extensively for TV, radio and stage, running independent company Mersey Television for 20 years until 2005. A fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and made a CBE in 2004, Redmond was appointed Deputy Chair and Creative Director of Liverpool's time as European Capital of Culture in 2008. Since then he has worked pro bono in the public sector, being influential in getting David Cameron to launch the ill-fated Big Society in Liverpool.
"A high-octane journey through many touchstones of broken Britain ... Highbridge sees Redmond repurposing those TV writing techniques. Each chapter is a melange of storylines building to an end of chapter cliffhanger that hooks the reader as firmly as Brookie's go-to-ad-break jeopardy. Dialogue is freighted with sass and politics. There's a splashy, violent denouement. We're back in Redmondshire." * Guardian * "Gritty, pacy and populated with memorable characters." * Good Housekeeping * "A state-of-the-nation novel." * Samira Ahmed, Front Row * "True to form, this book has a plethora of viewpoints, punchy plotlines and twists before we get to the crunching finale... everyone packed into these pages is a real as if you've just passed them by on the street" * Crime Fiction Lover *
