Eight people in a citizen’s jury, discussing the most important challenge in the history of humanity – how to save ourselves from the looming climate crisis. Exciting new solutions are proposed, each with their own champions and detractors. What they decide will affect us all. But they all have their own issues to deal with, and what is more, one of them has a hidden agenda. Who is the assassin and who are they there to kill?
The Assassin is a novella of about 16200 words written as part of the anthology compiled for COP27 delegates: No More Fairy Tales: Stories to Save Our Planet.
