Young Harry, an orphan from an impoverished council estate, becomes the link between starkly contrasting worlds: north and south, the deprived and the over-privileged, the powerful and the defenceless. With this compelling story of blackmail, media politics, corrupted innocence and redemptive love, Melvyn Bragg delivers an unforgettable portrait of modern life.

A splendid Dickensian sweep of a book (Observer)
A decent and intelligent novel, one which can be read, and will be read, with a great deal of pleasure (Allan Massie, Scotsman)
As a guide to media London, the novel is essential reading (T.J. Binyon, Times Literary Supplement)
The very good Bragg has forced a complex contemporary plot to work magic (David Hughes, Mail on Sunday)
Bragg has scarcely ever written better...A state of England message transfused by fiction (Tom Adair, Scotland on Sunday)
