Following the assassination of England’s Princess Valerie, the country is plunged into a period of paranoia and fear. Against a backdrop of violence, widespread disillusionment and social isolation, a nation must attempt to make sense of the murder of one of the most controversial figures of its age.
Set in the fractured city of Birmingham, Death of a Princess follows a host of characters as they navigate the social injustices of the modern world. A wealthy activist abandons his privileged lifestyle to champion the causes of the underclass, a teenage girl takes up a life of prostitution to escape her impoverished childhood and a young idealist finds love in a world of alienation. But in an age where nations are chewed up by war, violence lurks around every corner and people shun reality in favour of self-medication and online simulations – is there ever hope for a happy ending?
