Book 1 of the trilogy.

Product Description:

The Number 1 Bestseller that inspired the hit Netflix series starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.

Politics, intrigue and passion in the corridors of power.

Chief Whip Francis Urquhart has his hand on every secret in politics - and is willing to betray them all to become prime minister.

Mattie Storin is a tenacious young political correspondent. She faces the biggest challenge of her life when she stumbles upon a scandalous web of intrigue and financial corruption at the very highest levels. She is determined to reveal the truth, but she must risk everything to do so…

Review:

‘This blood-and-thunder tale, lifelike and thoroughly cynical, certainly carries the ring of authenticity… a great triumph.’

Independent

‘The exciting thriller that has Westminster buzzing. Here is a political thriller writer with a marvellous inside track knowledge of government. House of Cards is fast-moving, revelatory and brilliant.’

Daily Express

From the Back Cover:

When Francis Urquhart decides to fight for the ultimate political job – Prime Minister – he issues no challenge to the present incumbent. Instead, using the ammunition of political secrets he's acquired over the years as Chief Whip, he begins a silent, deadly campaign to eliminate every other candidate in any way he can – including murder. Mattie Storin, a young woman journalist, is the only one to sense Urquhart's terrifying self-interest and intent – but to take him on she must range herself against the most powerful men in the country.

A superb political thriller by Michael Dobbs, once advisor to such Conservative luminaries as Margaret Thatcher, Cecil Parkinson and Norman Tebbit, told with all the authority and excitement of inside knowledge.

About the Author:

Bestselling author Michael Dobbs was at Mrs Thatcher’s side as she took her first step into Downing Street as Prime Minister and was a key aide to John Major when he was voted out. In between times he was bombed in Brighton, banished from Chequers and blamed for failing to secoure a Blair-Major television debate. He is now one of the country’s leading political commentators.

"The Number 1 Bestseller that inspired the hit Netflix series starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright."

But far better known and truer to the book was the UK edition on BBC first shown in 1990 and shown last in 2007. Ian Richardson won a Best Actor BAFTA in 1991 for his role as Urquhart, and Andrew Davies won an Emmy for outstanding writing in a mini series. The series was ranked among the British Film Institute list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes.
