William Carver, a veteran but unpredictable BBC hack, is sent to Kabul and thrown into the unknown when a bomb goes off killing a local official. Warned off the story from every direction, Carver knows there is more to this than meets the eye and won't give in until he finds out the truth.

A young producer, on his first assignment overseas, is sent out in hope of calming the wayward Carver but, as it all unravels, it looks like the real story lies between the shadowy corridors of the BBC, the perilous streets of Kabul and the dark chambers of Whitehall.

A Dying Breed is a gripping novel about journalism in a time of war and the struggle to tell the stories that need to be told – even if it is much easier not to. Filled with twists and turns, this book shows how much information is really lost between the front line and the news.
