Michael Dobbs' books have a knack of being uncannily timely. His award-winning House of Cards trilogy foreshadowed both the downfall of Margaret Thatcher and the increasing turmoil within the Royal Family, while his Goodfellowe MP novels showed how a small band of highly motivated men could bring a great city to its knees. His most recent bestselling novel, Winston's War, was published just as the nation was voting for Winston Churchill as the Greatest Briton.He has been an academic, a broadcaster, a senior corporate executive and an adviser to two Prime Ministers.

Anthony Howard, THE TIMES'An intriguing tale of espionage and treason that charts the increasingly tangled lives of a unique cast. This is a work to enthral.' DAILY MAIL'Dobbs has done a brilliant job in evoking the drama and despair of Britain hovering on the edge of the abyss.' SUNDAY EXPRESS'Dobbs weaves a fascinating tale of conspiracy, blackmail and treachery ... This page-turning, meaty, densely textured wartime thriller unblinkingly dissects the wealthy oligarchy that nearly ruined Britain.' IRISH INDEPENDENT
