A father and son standing together. A brutal political conflict. Can they, and their bond, survive?
Tipping Point, set against the backdrop of the dark days of the 1974 three-day-week crisis and wildcat strikes, follows the fifteen-year-old Harry Hawkins through a crucial, formative week in his life. When his father persuades him to get involved in his strike-breaking activities Harry is launched onto a steep learning curve that will test both his ability to hold his own in a violent street-level struggle and his allegiance to his father.
Can, and should, the strike be broken? Will the son live up to the expectations of the father? Will they get out of the conflict in one piece?
