Michael Dobbs' entertaining tale of skulduggery and intrigue within the Palace of Westminster has been a huge hit with the public. Its scheming hero, Chief Whip Francis Urquhart, who uses fair means and foul to become Prime Minister, is one of the best-known characters of the last decade - the politician we all love to hate.
Acclaimed for its authenticity and insights into a secret world - the result of many years working behind the scenes for the Conservative Party - it became a highly popular, award-winning BBC TV series, with Francis Urquhart memorably portrayed by Ian Richardson, and was followed by two further sequels, ‘To Play the King' and The Final Cut, which also became top-rating TV series.

A gripping tale
Having read the book and watched the tv series very many years ago, I was very happy to find the audiobook.
I didn't enjoy the audio version as much as I remember enjoying either the novel or the tv version, but that might well be more a feature of my memory than anything else. However, I did enjoy it - it's lovely having Paul Eddington read it.
It's a gripping thriller really quite unpleasant people behaving unbelievably horribly!
An enjoyable listen.
