Cast your vote well,
Being represented by a party’s hell,
Your voice must get through,
Not the lazy ambitions of party bosses.
Their multiplication of division,
Prevents your unity being heard,
Except when herded into a duopoly.
Select an independent voice.
Don’t listen to the party faithful,
In their party gangs,
Thinking of themselves,
Not thinking of you nor of your future.
Give your vote to one who could represent you.

In the fiction novel Presumed Dead by Martin Knox, Jane Kenwood is a feisty politician in a hung city council where her vote is needed to stop a casino being approved. She disappears before a crucial vote. When she is found, she is too badly affected by an assault to identify where she had been taken, what was done to her, nor characteristics of her assailants. Her friend Dr Phillip Keane leads a forensic team who gather evidence for every alternative they can imagine, by Euler’s theory, in a think tank. Phillip pieces together a logical reconstruction of the crime that reveals the perpetrators. The investigation is explorative, the evidence is surmise, the suspects are at large and cover their tracks until the dénouement.
This is an exciting whodunnit story of city hall politics and systematic forensic investigation that will keep you turning the pages to the very end.
