9780007385171: To Play the King (House of Cards Trilogy)

Not since the 1640s has such a titanic clash been seen. The British parliament (team captain Francis Urquhart, the Prime Minister) is flexing its considerable, if flabby, muscles for a confrontation against the British Crown (team captain King Charles). Based on the BBC TV series.

From the Publisher:

'Michael Dobbs has an uncanny knack of forecasting the future. A fascinating read and a conclusion that would send a chill through Buckingham Palace.' - Sunday Express

'With a friend like Michael Dobbs, who needs enemies? A good romp, and gloriously cheeky. Dobbs' books grab because of their authenticity - the man knows his stuff.' - The Times

'Rattles along from scandal to scandal...excellent entertainment.' - Mail on Sunday

About the Author:

Michael Dobbs has carved out a unique niche as the country's leading political thriller writer, with a reputation for always being at the right hand of political controversy. In 1979 he was at Mrs Thatcher's side as she took her first step into Downing Street as Prime Minister, and in 1994 John Major appointed him Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party. One newspaper described him as 'Westminster's baby-faced hitman'.
