A Masterpiece

This book has very few reviews so I was only compelled to try it out because Rory Kinnear is such a marvelous reader! I’m so glad I gave it a try. This compelling portrayal of the dark side of politics in the Parliament, is the audio equivalent of a page turner. As an American with a passion for politics, it was equally fascinating to learn about the inner workings of the British government. This novel is brilliantly crafted. A must read!

A really good tale, labyrinthine and engaging,

Regardless of your politics this is a great story. A reasonably balanced depiction of those on both sides of the fence (wherever you might see it) and an excellent 'who dun it' by any measure! Well written and over far to quickly. I am sorry that Tom Watson has stepped away from politics though his reasons bleed clear from the narrative. All massively topical of course though the interest doesn't depend on that. In any event he is a welcome author and I hope this is the beginning of his career in political fiction. I look forward to the next. Obviously a good writing partnership, the characters are well drawn and interesting. Recommended.

An intriguing story.

A well played-out story with an insight into the Westminster bubble. I know it's fiction but aspects felt uncomfortably plausible.

Complicated

Life in Westminster - could be interesting book if you really love British politics. You do need to concentrate though due to the many characters. Really hard to review this book - seems like not much happens (even at the end) but when you think back to the individuals, I suppose a lot happens. Different.
