One banker will be assassinated every month unless the government reduces the gap between the rich and the poor in a new novel by a Kingston College lecturer.

Simon Corbin, who teaches key skills and functional skills, wrote Love, Gudrun Ensslin in response to the credit crunch, the widening gap between rich and poor and the modern obsession with celebrity.

It imagines Baader Meinhof-style tactics being applied to the iniquities of 21st century global capitalism, and tells the story of the first generation of Baader Meinhof in 1968-1972.

Mr Corbin's debut novel, Rude Boy, was published last year.

He will be signing copies in Waterstone's, Kingston, from 2pm on Saturday, February 19.
