LoveReading View on Open Arms

This is a near future, post Brexit, political-cum-business thriller where Britain is seeking strong trade deals outside Europe.  The protagonist, or so we initially believe, is Kate Thompson, a new, charming and good looking Tory trade minister who is sent to India just as war looks likely between India and Pakistan.  She falls for (true love?) the chief of an Indian arms technology company which a UK electronic parts manufacturer is doing big business with.  That company employs a lot of Muslims.  Now the Indian/Pakistan problem overflows to the British factory workers who are influenced by Muslim extremists.  Then a dirty American company steps in.  Corruption leaks off the pages, intrigue and explosives situations abound; all is very action-packed.  It is a good plot idea and a most enjoyable read. Sarah Broadhurst

Open Arms Synopsis

Kate Thompson - glamorous housewife-turned-MP - surprises everyone with her meteoric rise at Westminster. When Kate is sent as a trade minister to India, she hopes it will be her moment to shine. But, embroiled in a personal scandal, she gets drawn into a dangerous world of corruption and political intrigue...

Billionaire Deepak Parrikar - head of an Indian arms technology company - is magnetically drawn to the beautiful British minister. But while their relationship deepens, India's hostilities with Pakistan reach boiling point, causing more than just business and politics to collide. In the race to prevent disaster, can their conflicting loyalties survive being tested to the limit?

Open Arms is an explosive thriller which circles from Whitehall to the slums of Mumbai. Cable's sweeping tale combines unrivalled political detail with international intrigue, desire, and the quest for power. An electrifying debut.
