Who is Sarah Broadhurst ? 

Synopsis

Pompeii by Robert Harris

A sweltering week in late August. Where better to enjoy the last days of summer than on the beautiful Bay of Naples? But even as Rome's richest citizens relax in their villas around Pompeii and Herculaneum, there are ominous warnings that something is going wrong. Wells and springs are failing, a man has disappeared, and now the greatest aqueduct in the world - the mighty Aqua Augusta - has suddenly ceased to flow-Through the eyes of four characters - a young engineer, an adolescent girl, a corrupt millionaire and an elderly scientist - Robert Harris brilliantly recreates a luxurious world on the brink of destruction.

Daily Telegraph Breakneck pace, constant jeopardy and subtle twists of plot

... a blazing blockbuster Daily Mail Harris has done a tremendous job in evoking life in ancient Italy... I am lost in admiration at his energy and skill Mail on Sunday The long drawn-out death agony of the two cities is brilliantly done. Explosive stuff indeed Daily Telegraph

    We in the trenches are key to winning the battle. My old boss,Exec Chair of Monitor said:"We regulate because they deliver". Power is local.

    I left national policy formulation for local change transformation. Stuff doesn't happen coz Whitehall wills it, but coz local pops want it!

    Are we yet fully joined up in our local health economies? Evidence suggests self interest is still preventing real transformational change.
