Red Norfolk

by Allan Kashmer

Genre: Futuristic Suspense/thriller

Synopsis:
In the novel RED NORFOLK, a small group of communists seek to overthrow the democratically-elected government by a carefully-planned coup against the government. The group is aware of historical precedents, most notably the Russian revolution of 1917 which, far from being a mass uprising against the government, was actually a coup led by dedicated militants.

The novel proposes that the Australian government decides to abolish cash. This assists the revolutionaries in achieving their goals. Nilson publisher David Robertson has already concluded that “the technology now exists for a paperless (without cash) society”.

review

Red Norfolk is quite a contemporary political fiction in which the author presents the reader the possibility of cash abolition in Australia by a Communist Party, as well as their attempt to take over the country. I have to admit political and crime novels aren’t exactly my coup of tea but it is always quite exciting reading how the author manages to pull off a credible novel which you might even confuse with a history book if it is well done. I don’t know much about Australia’s political and economic system. Therefore, for the purpose of the novel, I accepted everything the novel said. However, I would recommend the author to do a little bit of research before reading the novel if they want to make comparisons between reality and fiction. Otherwise, you might be totally immerged into the latter. Yes, the narrative is that good.
As mentioned before, the novel deals with cash abolition in Australia. It arose as a result of an extreme inflation in the country due to mass production of fake bills by Indonesian. This turned into such a political scandal because the Australian government went as far as to cut ties with Indonesia. I am quite fond of history and after taking an anthropology course this term, I couldn’t help but feel I was relieving pieces of the world’s history through the novel. It presents China as supporter of the Communist Party which was trying to take over Australia and asserted the political ideology of China by highlighting its support to North Vietnam during the Vietnam War. Nevertheless, I believe it isn’t proper to claim that China just helped North Vietnam in the 20th Century when it established relations with Cambodia and gave them their support. In fact, the Cambodians later resented this help when the U.S. started bombarding Cambodia between 1969 and 1973. In my opinion, novels which deal with historical events, as well as political and economic situations are the hardest because there is no way that someone does enough research to know everything about the history of every country in the world. Nevertheless, Kashmer seemed to have done enough research to make his main themes plausible enough to present the reader with a possibility that almost gets confused with the truth or even a premonition.
I would highly recommend this novel to anyone that likes political novels with a touch of history, crime, mass production of fake money, and all the trouble that comes when a political ideology that isn’t in power fights with everything they have to take the country.
