In the shadowy world of the spin doctor, Dr Mark Ivor is the undisputed king. Many of the country's leading businessmen and politicians rely upon his services as a professional political strategist, working behind the scenes to manipulate the media – planting a story here, a rumour there, a tip-off somewhere else – so that any piece of news is tailored to show his clients in the best possible light.
As a general election approaches, he is preparing for the most crucial phase of his professional career when suddenly his world comes crashing down around him. His destiny is in the hands of powerful factions, who are jealous of his growing influence at No 10 – and if he is to reclaim control of his life, Mark Ivor knows he must match them move for move in their high-risk, high-stakes game.
'Michael Shea knows all about political intrigue and makes fine use of his expertise in 'Spin Doctor', which dashes enjoyably around the corridors of influence. What gives 'Spin Doctor' its cutting edge is the fact that Michael Shea has been a spin doctor himself. His fiction bears s disturbing resemblance to fact'
'A gem – a taut thriller of political intrigue and skulduggery that fairly belts along. A chilling portrait of the Machiavellian world that lies behind the corridors of power in Westminster and Whitehall'
Michael Shea wrote a string of successful thrillers in the 1970s under the name of Michael Sinclair, but stopped writing novels when he became the Queen’s Press Secretary, a position he held for a decade. He now combines writing with a wide range of business interests, dividing his time between Edinburgh and London.
