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'.
`A triumphant return... The best book of the three. The action is unflagging, the characterization razor-sharp, the satirical barbs at politics and politicians unfailingly accurate. Urquhart's last days in Downing Street are as compelling as Mrs Thatcher's. What a brilliant creation F.U. is.'Sunday Telegraph`Razor-sharp and merciless... One thing is certain: F.U. will be remembered for much longer than the name of many a real Prime Minister.'Daily Mail`Magnificent... this book has it all.'Sunday Express
