The North West Parallel 1999 – Synopsis
“The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” – Charles Baudelaire
As the new millennium approaches, we follow William on his quest for enlightenment and purpose. Will he find meaning in his life? Will he find love and acceptance?
London, 1999 and a racist lunatic is on the rampage. Bombs are causing havoc. Communities are under attack.
The impending Millennium Bug is creating confusion. Will it cause the destruction of technology or will technology take over? The government is taking no chances and a major upgrade of computer systems is being implemented.
Join William as he is drawn deeper into London’s criminal fraternity. The police are closing in on the infamous BackBeat Club’s owner. Operation Le Grande, involving over 500 police officers, is about to go down!
William has some tough choices to make. Where will his loyalty lie?
The North West Parallel features documentation of actual events in the recent history of London.
In certain cases incidents, characters and timelines have been changed for dramatic purposes.
Do you remember the good ole days?

We believe in 4D learning. By attaching a story to historic events the reader becomes more involved. Our illustrations enable audiences to feel more for the story. By colouring the images, a bond is formed and the reader develops empathy.
William is also interested in and focused on people’s recovery from drug and alcohol abuse as well as those suffering from trauma. The company dgmedia, which William co-founded, is dedicated to improving mental health through The Millennium Hug movement. Our books are designed to help people focus on themselves and avoid the temptation of substance abuse.
