"Krill" by em thompson - a riveting tale of redemption and political awakening in the digital age
Dive into the world of "Krill," em thompson's eerily timely novel, where bankrupt businessman John Tucker is thrust from despair to the heights of political power. "Krill" is a thought-provoking exploration of human ambition and power, resonating with today's tech-savvy readers.

In an era where political intrigue and digital manipulation are at the forefront of public consciousness, em  thompson's latest novel, “Krill” is a prescient and thought-provoking study in ambition, the manipulation of social media and false news. Originally written a decade ago but just as relevant today, “Krill” charts the journey of John Tucker, a bankrupt businessman, from the depths of ignominy to the pinnacle of power.

Disillusioned, depressed and penniless, Tucker finds an unlikely path to redemption when he is enlisted by a secretive political party, The New Praetorians,  led by the enigmatic Kristy McGill, known popularly as Krill. Instrumental in helping Krill stage a democratic coup using the excuse of a false terrorist threat, Tucker comes to realize that this is just a facade for a much darker goal: world domination. The narrative takes a dramatic turn when civil war erupts, forcing Tucker to reassess his values and choose sides.

From well-respected reviewer, Literary Titan, “Krill” receives high praise for its compelling narrative. The review highlights the novel's captivating nature: "Each sentence pulses with energy and life, keeping the reader thoroughly engaged." Particularly noteworthy is the character development, as seen in love interest, Rosa's, transformation from "somewhat unapproachable and severe" to a  significant figure in the story. Literary Titan also applauds the novel's pace and the "articulate and insightful speeches" of the character, Krill. The unique mix of humor and drama, coupled with  "unexpected twists," is cited as making "Krill" a rewarding read for a broad spectrum of fans of contemporary fiction.

Subtly integrating quotes from historical figures including Hitler, Goebbels, Stalin, the Duke of Wellington and Napoleon in the dialogue, "Krill" reminds us that a lust for power has always been a present danger, irrespective of technological advances, the age in which we live and whatever democratic constraints we may put in place. This chillingly perceptive novel is a wake-up call to the realities of power and manipulation in the digital age.

Now available on eBook and Kindle, in paperback on Amazon and other online book-stops, and as an audiobook on Audible, narrated by multi-award winning storyteller, Malk Williams  (
