BOOK 1 - THERE IS ALWAYS A PRICE TO PAY: THE SINS OF YESTERDAY; THE FAILURES OF TODAY; THE GOALS FOR WHICH WE PLAY OR PRAY. JAMES WOOLCOTT - Prologue 1

The day Nathan Jellicoe was murdered he had attained the age of 67 years and 51 days. 42 of those years had been spent in politics, the last 9 as President of Amity. Prior to that he had been Prime Minister for 6 years, and served an apprenticeship as Leader of the Opposition and MP.

It was a proud day for him. “POLITICS AND DESTINY IN AMITY”, an essay competition for high school students, for which he had been responsible, had been run and judged and the authors of the 100 best entries were seated before him in the chamber. One of the most gratifying results was that his grandson Samuel, was in the front row —- no nepotism, no special concession —- just an excellent essay.

Jellicoe smiled down at Samuel, then at his wife, and daughter, who were seated on either side of him. Three generations of Jellicoes, smiling up at him from the floor of the chamber where he was Commander In Chief.
