The Show - a new novel by alumnus Nick Sanders

  • Date11 November 2020

Alumnus Nick Sanders (BA History 2001) has released a new novel, The Show.


Nick says, "I wanted to write a story that would be satisfying for fans of both George Orwell’s, Nineteen Eighty-Four and Agatha Christie's, And Then There Were None, which is how The Show came about."

A group of fame-hungry contestants meet on the set of a reality TV show located on a secluded island. However, the price of fame seems too high when one of the contestants turns up dead, and it becomes clear that the cameras exist only to record their suffering.

The Show is on sale on Amazon for £7.99 in paperback and 99p on Kindle. You can read more about Nick and his other novel To Die For at
