Inhaltsangabe:

Michael Dobbs returns to the subject that made him a household name - the high drama and scandal of the political world. This is HOUSE OF CARDS for the 21st century, an insider's view of the dynamics of power by a writer who has had a privileged seat at the court of government for many, many years.

This time the king maker is a woman, Virginia Edge, mid-thirties, attractive, self-sufficient, ambitious. This is the story of her transformation from dutiful political wife to masterful manipulator of the entire political process at Westminster. She is a woman who is driven by the failings of men and the greed of others to take over their system and undermine it, to repay them in kind. In this battle she has two great allies - the intuition and determination of a wronged wife, and the blind ineptitude of Westminster men.

Rezension: 'Brilliant... Full of magnificently dark political characters' ( Daily Mail)

Intrigue, political scandal and government treachery... Dobbs demonstrates why he is the master ( Times Literary Supplement)

Dobbs has given us a splendid diversion, one that makes it worth chucking the TV set out of the window and settling down with a book ( Sunday Express)

Dobbs is following in a respectable tradition. Shakespeare, Walter Scott, even Tolstoy, all used historical events as the framework for their writings. And, unlike some of their distinguished works, Dobbs's novel is, in fact, astonishingly historically accurate ( Anthony Howard, The Times)
