Children of the Master

by Andrew Marr

Children of the Master Synopsis

MARR IS BACK... AND BETTER THAN EVER The Prime Minister's days are numbered. The Master, a shadowy figure from his party's past, plans to replace him with someone he can manipulate to his own ends. But who will he choose? Two candidates stand out: David Petrie, a handsome, self-made Scot with a troubled personal history; and Caroline Phillips, a high-flying Londoner whose unconventional private life could make or break her. Against a backdrop of intrigue and betrayal at Westminster, these two must play the Master at his own game if they are to seize the greatest political prize of all.

Children of the Master Press Reviews

`The novel has uncanny echoes of the current political drama in Westminster ... Marr has drawn on his many years as BBC political editor and as one of the nation's favourite political interrogators to produce a racy page-turner. I loved it' Andrew Pierce, Daily Mail `Benefits from an entertaining and fluent style as well as the sort of mastery of Machiavellian political machination that one would expect of someone from [Marr's] background... Marr successfully blends fact with fiction freely to create a convincing political landscape that will be instantly recognisable to those with even the most cursory interest in current affairs... Amid the intrigue there are some excellent jokes and the plot bounces along merrily' Scotsman `Marr dissects Westminster's Machiavellian machinations with his customary gusto ... Compelling reading' Daily Mail
