‘Blood Summit’
by Robert Pimm

“Counter-terrorism expert Helen Gale has one job: to protect world leaders at a summit in the Berlin Reichstag. But terrorists take hostage presidents, prime ministers, one hundred innocent children – and Helen’s journalist husband. Then the executions start. Helen’s life implodes. Yet she alone can see the truth. As special forces plan a deadly assault, she must enter the shattered hulk of the Reichstag to stop a bloodbath… ”

The author Robert Pimm reads four extracts from ‘Blood Summit’ and answers questions from Maria, Sandra and Andrew.

We discuss the novel as a political thriller, the types of characters involved, and the narrative style.

Music played:

  • Leonard Cohen – Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye
  • Mikis Theodorakis – Music from the film ‘Z’
