Many of the twists in this novel of political intrigue strangely echo events in best-selling author Jeffrey Archer's own abandoned political career. With insight only an insider would have, Archer chronicles a bitter rivalry that lasts through three tumultuous decades. Four extraordinary men, all from very different backgrounds vie for the position of Prime Minister. But only one of them can move into No. 10 Downing Street and attain the pinnacle of power in Great Britain.
