9780002254137: Acts of Betrayal

Wayward backbencher Tom Goodfellowe makes his third appearance in the new novel of treachery at the highest levels from the bestselling author of House of Cards. Colonel Peter Amadeus is an old soldier with a grievance. He wants an apology from the Prime Minister. But this Prime Minister does not believe in apologizing for anything. For Amadeus it becomes a matter of honour -- and retribution. Soon London is a city under siege, its lifelines cut. Then comes his ultimatum: the Prime Minister must resign -- or London will be destroyed. Only one man stands between the capital and disaster -- Tom Goodfellowe, a backbench MP who can't even sort out his own life, let alone save the lives of others. He is a man torn between ambition, honour and love -- with the fate of London slipping swiftly through his fingers.

About the Author:

For two decades, Michael Dobbs has been at the right hand of political controversy. He was at Mrs Thatcher's side as she took her first step into Downing Street as Prime Minister, and was a key aide to John Major when he was voted out. In between times he was bombed in Brighton, banished from Chequers and blamed for failing to secure a Blair-Major television debate.

From AudioFile:

Readers familiar with Dobbs's HOUSE OF CARDS trilogy will be delighted by the machinations in his most recent book--here we find the same satirical view of English politics and politicians; the prominence of idealistic, doomed mavericks; and the emphasis on sexual intrigue. Michael Kitchen, who has read Dobbs for Chivers before, clearly relishes the roles he portrays and delights in the convolutions of the plot. He makes the major characters unusually alive and believable, infusing them with the personalities obviously intended by the author. His pacing and subtle variation in tone and emphasis are the best. This is an addicting listen. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
