The Counterfeit Candidate by Brian Klein centres around a dark political conspiracy which threatens the very heart and soul of American democracy. It is out now, published by Spirit Entertainment. 

He also discussed his debut book, political thriller The Counterfeit Candidate, which is published by Spirit Entertainment.

Speaking with stations including BBC Radio Leeds, Shropshire, Devon, Cambridge, Lancashire and Kent, he revealed how he came to write the book when his busy filming schedule instantly cleared last March when the Covid pandemic struck and the UK went into lockdown. 

Based on an idea that “had been buried inside my head for over forty years”, Mr Klein completed the novel in just 12 weeks.

It has since been hailed as an “instant classic” and has become an Amazon bestseller. 

Review copies of The Counterfeit Candidate are currently available to the media. Contact publicist Anthony Harvison for all enquiries.
