Review:

"The novel - both its 1989 and 2014 incarnations - is a delicious wallow in British bad behavior, both public and private... You'll find their accents plummier, of course, and their sense of class distinctions sharper. But no translation skills are required to make Dobb's novel a yummy treat for any Anglophile - or any fan of the new House of Cards." - AARP.org

From the Back Cover:

When Francis Urquhart decides to fight for the ultimate political job – Prime Minister – he issues no challenge to the present incumbent. Instead, using the ammunition of political secrets he's acquired over the years as Chief Whip, he begins a silent, deadly campaign to eliminate every other candidate in any way he can – including murder. Mattie Storin, a young woman journalist, is the only one to sense Urquhart's terrifying self-interest and intent – but to take him on she must range herself against the most powerful men in the country.

A superb political thriller by Michael Dobbs, once advisor to such Conservative luminaries as Margaret Thatcher, Cecil Parkinson and Norman Tebbit, told with all the authority and excitement of inside knowledge.
