Gene Trowbridge, a successful advertising executive, fills the days before his retirement assessing his past and contemplating the future, increasingly aware of his own irrelevance in a field dominated by the very young. But a chance meeting with Albert Ferdinand, a reclusive neighbour who wins his regard and friendship, upsets the tenuous balance of Gene’s cosseted world. Spurred on by a persistent journalist and overwhelmed by his instinctive liking and acceptance of a man apparently capable of indescribable evil, Gene is drawn into a suspenseful search for the truth about Ferdinand’s past.

The Liberty Campaign is a riveting, multilayered portrait of an ordinary man whose moral universe is tested by a situation that defies the parameters of his decidedly American upbringing and sensibility.

Superb. In Gene, Dee has invented a narrator with whom most readers will empathize, and placed him in a situation that is simultaneously real and surreal. His assured use of an older man's voice, and his mastery of its sombre tone, is every bit as mesmerizing as Kazuo Ishiguro's achievement in The Remains of the Day.

Quietly gripping and controlled. The Liberty Campaign will set thoughtful minds abuzz.
