Helen Pendry has worked in higher education, research and editing. She has also worked in a zoo, a hostel and a bookshop. Her articles and reviews have appeared in Planet, New Welsh Review and Wales Arts Review, and she has been the recipient of a Literature Wales Bursary Award. She lives in Machynlleth. The Levels is her first novel.
One day in winter a military drone on a training flight hurtles out of the sky and smashes into a holiday park. A young mother living in a static caravan is killed instantly.
While all the initial reports suggest a tragic accident, Abby Hughes suspects the crash was a deliberate act of sabotage by a homeless man who made maps and hated war. Determined to find the truth, she has to contend with the powerful forces trying to bury it.
"The Levels, with all the tension and plot twists and turns that you would expect from a gripping crime novel, makes an unsettling, compelling read. But it is the portrait of a globalised arms industry — with its bland, corporatised brand of mass murder — that really terrifies." Liz Jones, Morning Star
