A thrilling novel which exposes chilling, post-Brexit Britain

K.N. Palmer’s ‘BRoken EXITis a fusion of fact and fiction, transporting readers into the 2020s as Britain reels in its festering post-Brexit state. Politics has become a game without rules, society refuses to listen and terrorists are about to set their sights on the leader of the new English Independence Party.  K.N Palmer weaves a frightening narrative that feels current and entirely plausible in a post-BREXIT world.

 United Kingdom – With Brexit approaching, nobody has any idea what the future holds. However, while mysterious, many believe it’s a tumultuous future unlike anything witnessed before in the modern world.

In his new novel BRoken EXIT, K.N. Palmer embroils readers in that reality. It is fiction and a possible prophecy rolled into one unforgettable read.


About the Book:

In 2023, after Britain has exited the EU, immigration is still above target and the NHS buckles under the enormous demands that are placed upon it. In the eyes of many, things hadn’t changed since BREXIT, so a year earlier, two-party politics was swept aside as a new political order, the English Independence Party (EIP) surged to power.

Vowing to tackle these issues head on, the borders of the UK are closed, and an underlying scourge of intolerance develops. The leader of the EIP is attending the UK City of Culture in Nottingham, finds himself targeted directly by terrorists. Prime Minister Barnaby Aitken is injured and on the run, rescued by an estranged father, out for the day with his son. Hunted across Nottingham, Lee Bevan must ensure their survival, whilst the security services try to uncover those behind this appalling attack. Unfortunately, the terrorists always seem to be one step ahead.

‘BRoken EXIT’ is an explosive and enthralling ride through political divides and the desire to stay alive.



About the Author:

Kevin Palmer has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for nearly twenty-five years, holding senior positions in UK & global sales and marketing roles. However, when he was made redundant in 2015, a recurring dream sparked an idea for his debut novel ‘BRoken EXIT’. With the referendum still a way off, but a great back drop to his idea, Kevin tried to envision what life may be like in a post-BREXIT Britain and decided to set the story in Nottingham, where he attended University back in the late-1980s / early-1990s. As a student in the fabulous city, he was a regular visitor to many of the places mentioned in the story and has fond memories of some of the areas where he lived.

Now in his late-forties, Kevin lives in a small village in Suffolk with a great community spirit, along with his wife, three children, the family dog and their three chickens. Outside of working full time, he is a Formula 1 fan, and loves to run or cycle when he can, to keep fit and to appreciate the amazing countryside he lives in.

He is not a politician and cannot predict the future, but there is something very foreboding about his new novel.


‘BRoken EXIT’ is available in both paperback and e-book formats from Amazon UK:

A detective thriller full of intrigue, twists & turns involving international organizations


About the Book:

Inspector Anne Stanford, on sick-leave from the CID, visits Italy with an aunt who expects to receive the Visconti prize for biotechnology. First they are told that the prize should have been awarded to someone else; then they discover that it never existed. So why did someone pretend that it did? And is Anne Stanford going to take on another case when she has earned the right to a break from policing and especially from her Chief Inspector Crabtree?

A tale of intrigue involving multinationals and at the same time a story with a strong West Country flavour, Inspector Stanford’s conversion is a detective thriller full of twists and turns. With a strong storyline and a fine cast of characters, it is compelling reading from first to last page.


Amazon review:

Dr. Mark A. Corner

5.0 out of 5 stars  A traditional and compelling whodunit

Format: Paperback

A whodunit with a West Country flavour, by a writer with a good style and a scientific background to make a plot full of twists and turns credible. The characters are genuine, not at all wooden – and the tension between Inspector Anne Stanford and Chief Inspector Crabtree adds relish to the tensions in the plot itself. I finished this in one sitting – which is unusual for me with any novel. With a strong main character, a clever plot and a West Country flavour, it has the mastery of Miss Marple on the 4.50 from Paddington… while the scenes in Italy prevent it from being too ‘provincial’ – think of Stanford and Crabtree as like Morse and Lewis in that wonderful episode ‘The Death of the Self’… Altogether a great read!

A heart-warming story based on two families and spanning three generations, taking place over nearly a century


About the Book:

The Sudan, World War Two; British and Italian forces consumed by a guerrilla warfare struggle under the African Sun. Cagliari, Sardinia 1990, the English invade the small Italian island during the World Cup. 2015, two young people trying to find their way in life in 21st Century London. An epic saga, based on two families, and three generations, spanning almost a century.  A Bridge and not an End will take the reader across time, oceans and continents, and explore the concepts of family and love, in a framework of historical events.



Excerpt from the Book:

“As I look back on my life, it seems to me a series of random yet somehow interconnected events, many of which have had severe negative consequences on both myself and those unfortunate enough to be close to me.  I sometimes mused, in my darker moments, whether I was cursed or jinxed.  I wondered if I shouldn’t chuck myself under a commuter train or overdose on vodka and pills.  I wondered if, aboard that ferry all those years ago, I shouldn’t have just thrown myself into the seething waters and allowed the sea to take my miserable soul.  It would have been too late to stop the chain of events that I started, but before that fateful trip in 1990, I had enjoyed a reasonably charmed existence.  I could never have left my boy, not in a million years and of course, I was unaware of what the gods had in store for me, for all of us.”

A fresh, independent and common sense perspective on the events in Whitechapel in 1888


 About the Book:

 Books on Jack the Ripper can be hard work. Authors have felt obliged to pack information around a chronological account of the murders. Participants in the events appear and even reappear leaving a reader confused. Often an unconvincing suspect is identified.

LIGHT WORK is different and serious, but sometimes sardonic. The story or legend of Jack the Ripper is separated into self-contained topics. The range within LIGHT WORK is wide and contains some surprises – London smog, music hall entertainers, Irish revolutionaries, female political radicals, a Texan serial killer, modern Jack the Ripper tours, and even a surreal visit to a lake filled with corpses.
