(From the publisher):
Events, it is often said, are the very stuff of politics. And they don't come much bigger than the death of a prime minister...
When a heart attack brings Simon Russell's premiership to an unexpected close, the Tory party finds itself thrown into a vicious, bloody leadership battle. The tone is lowered by the Chancellor's campaign manager, the scheming, ambitious David Alcester, but his attempts to discredit the other candidates only serve to backfire against him.
Alcester's ambition is anything but dimmed by defeat. And following an election loss, it is he who ends up Leader of the Opposition. His New England movement is rabidly anti-European, but is saving its main ammunition for the Scots: Alcester would be happy to see the back of them, a policy which is bringing him into the strangest of alliances...
