First Lady: An unputdownable thriller of politics and power Summary

First Lady: An unputdownable thriller of politics and power by Michael Dobbs

Michael Dobbs, author of the No. 1 bestseller that inspired the hit Netflix series House of Cards, returns to the subject that made him a household name - the human drama and scandal in Westminster. First Lady is a compelling and witty novel of power, seduction and revenge, perfect for fans of John Grisham and Philip Kerr.

Virginia Edge: mid-thirties, attractive, self-sufficient, ambitious.

This is the story of her transformation from dutiful political wife to masterful manipulator of the entire political process at Westminster. She is a woman who is driven by the failings of men and the greed of others to take over their system and undermine it, to repay them in kind.

In this battle she has two great allies - the intuition and determination of a wronged wife, and the blind ineptitude of Westminster men.

Praise for Michael Dobbs:

'Brilliant... Full of magnificently dark political characters' Daily Mail

'It's barbed and breakneck, often very funny and hugely entertaining' The Times

'Here is a political thriller writer with a marvellous inside track knowledge of government' Daily Express

About Michael Dobbs

Michael Dobbs was born in the same hour as Prince Charles. It doesn't seem to have done him too much harm. In the years since then he has become a doctor of philosophy, a senior adviser to both Margaret Thatcher and John Major, a Deputy Chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi, a regular presenter of BBC TV's Despatch Box and a columnist for the Mail on Sunday. In his spare time he has written books ranging from the bestselling House of Cards trilogy that became a hugely popular TV series to his recent brilliant series of historical novels about the life of Winston Churchill. He tries to live quietly with his wife and four sons near a pub and a church in Wiltshire.
