A terrorist regime, The Following, has gained de facto control of Denmark by gradually imposing its religious radicalism on all the population. Eventually it becomes a questionable legal government: one that aims to rigorously enforce its harsh new powers with savagery if necessary.

Billy Farrow and his pregnant wife Jenny attend a compulsory Assembly where a woman is to be executed. Jenny can not control a spasm, and accidentally causes her face to be exposed. A Revolutionary Guard sees this, and moves to arrest her for revealing it in a public place. She escapes, but is pursued by the state relentlessly. She requires assistance from husband Billy, devoted friends, the Underground, and an unlikely religious cleric and his wife. But help inevitably leads to ever more serious breaches of the laws of the new state. Her troubles become insurmountable.            

When, in time, the regime catches up with Jenny, now mother to a baby daughter, she faces a cruel and unusual death penalty; one in which husband Billy has played an unwitting and unwilling hand. She is to be publicly shamed.  


The European Union and elite British forces intervene and an unexpected family connection comes to Jennys aid, but there are dire consequences. Can Jenny be saved? Can Denmark be saved?

Charles P. Helmsville was born and brought up in rural England, becoming a Queen’s Scout at 15 years old and one of the earliest recipients of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (gold standard). At school, he was the captain of the first 15 rugby team and vice-captain of the first 11 cricket. Through his local Youth Club, he represented his county in a number of regional drama festivals and public speaking competitions.

He has travelled extensively and has lived in Western Australia, Victoria Australia, and Toronto, Canada, where he presently resides with his wife. He has two married sons, both lawyers, one practicing locally, the other in San Francisco, California. He also has three granddaughters and a grandson, with all of whom he spends as much time as possible.

Charles himself served half a century in the legal profession, his early years as a solicitor’s clerk, then a legal executive, and the latter 40 years as an articled student and a barrister of the Supreme Court of Ontario, practicing civil litigation as a member of The Law Society of Upper Canada. Since withdrawing from the practice, he firmly renounces the “R” word and is now an Introspectionist and a Writer.

Charles has a Bachelor of Law degree from the University of London, and a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Osgoode Hall Law School of York University, Toronto. He is also an Associate of the Australian College of Theology and an Officer of the Order of St. John.
