The publisher billed the new book as “Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising.” The book is a dramatic departure from her wizard series, and will focus on a parish council election in a small English town that “becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.


The Plot:“When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty fa├žade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.”
