Publisher's Summary

In the 1960s, four ambitious new MPs take their seats at Westminster. Over three decades they share the turbulent passions of the race for power with their wives and families, men and women caught up in a dramatic game for the highest stakes of all. But only one man can gain the ultimate goal: the office of prime minister.

Critic Reviews

"Jeffrey Archer has a gift for plot that can only be described as genius." (Daily Telegraph)
"Political intrigue permeates this best-selling novel about four very different men who, after entering British politics in the '60s, spend the next 30 years vying for power until one reaches the pinnacle as prime minister. That the author, a British lord, is himself a politico lends the machinations authenticity....[Martin Jarvis] vividly portrays the dramatis personae." (AudioFile)

A well constructed story

His latest book 'Prisoner of Birth' revealed to me Jeffrey Archer's skill as a story-teller and I wasn't disappointed by this earlier publication. It's not as engrossing a tale, and is much shorter, but the author keeps ones attention throughout with the manchinations of politicians about which the author obviously has inside knowledge.
