Initially inspired by the Yewtree Inquiry that followed Jimmy Savile’s death, and the revelations of frequent, casual and at times almost public abuse of children, I set about a little research. It soon became apparent that he wasn’t isolated in his actions. He had strong friendships, difficult to account for as a result of his mediocre talents alone, with people of great influence.
Does the society of the fictional planet Respite reflect that of Earth? I hope my readers will make up their own minds on that question.
If I can encourage you to think about it, I’ve done my job.
