Going East

by Matthew D'Ancona

Mia Taylor's life is enviable: she has a high-profile career, a glamorous, powerful family, and feels trust and love for the world that surrounds her. And then a terrorist bomb destroys it all in one night. Struggling to comprehend the loss of everything she once took for granted, she exchanges Bond Street shopping trips and lavish galas for long hours working at a dilapidated health center in London's gritty East End. As she starts to emerge from grief, she begins to piece together what may have been a cover-up for her family's destruction. Politics and corruption, poverty and decadence, bigotry and class warfare converge in what is at once a mystery, a love story, and a testament to the resilience that can only be born in the wake of turbulent times.
