Review:

‘With a friend like Michael Dobbs, who on earth needs enemies? His timing is again impeccable. A good romp, and gloriously cheeky. Dobbs’
books grab because of their authenticity – the man knows his stuff.’
The Times

‘This thriller will delight anybody who relishes political intrigue... a model of its kind and impeccably timed.’
Daily Mail

From the Back Cover:

Britain has a new Prime Minister and a new King. Francis Urquhart is a ruthless politician determined to cling to power in spite of the troubles he knows are ahead, but he is frustrated at every turn by a caring, idealistic monarch.

Their differences of opinion quickly degenerate into open hostility. The battlefield ranges from architecture to the underprivileged; the battle is fought with rigged opinion polls, manipulated newspaper headlines, sexual scandal and economic brinkmanship as Urquhart sets out to destroy not only the King’s family and friends but even the King himself.
