Readers familiar with Dobbs's HOUSE OF CARDS trilogy will be delighted by the machinations in his most recent book--here we find the same satirical view of English politics and politicians; the prominence of idealistic, doomed mavericks; and the emphasis on sexual intrigue. Michael Kitchen, who has read Dobbs for Chivers before, clearly relishes the roles he portrays and delights in the convolutions of the plot. He makes the major characters unusually alive and believable, infusing them with the personalities obviously intended by the author. His pacing and subtle variation in tone and emphasis are the best. This is an addicting listen. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
