Beschreibung

The acclaimed political thriller that first introduced the unforgettable Francis Urquhart, MP, and launched Michael Dobbs' Number-one best-selling career - now reissued in a new cover.
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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

Zusammengebrochen

Wenn man die brillant bösartige BBC-Verfilmung kennt, so ist Michael Dobbs Buch ohnehin vergleichsweise betulich (vom moralischen Ende ganz abgesehen). Weiters ist sie brutal gekürzt, aber dann kommt noch die fast einschläfernde Stimme von Paul Eddington hinzu.

Er war ein großartiger PM Hacker in "Yes, Minister", aber die Geschichte müsste von Sir Humphrey erzählt werden. Sie braucht den Reiz des amoralischen....

Und mit der neuen US-Serie hat das Ganze schon gar nichts zu tun.
