The Sound of Trumpets

£15.99

Product description

It's three decades since local boy Leslie Titmuss, son of a humble brewery clerk, first entered Parliament as the member for the constituency of Hartscombe and Worsfield South and began his rise to the very height of government during the Thatcher years. Lord Titmuss, of First Baron Skurfield as he has become, is still a figure with formidable influence in the constituency, but now the Conservative government, under a new leader, is in trouble, and it faces a difficult by-election at Hartscombe after the extraordinary death of the sitting Tory M.P. - his body found floating one summer morning in his swimming-pool, handcuffed and clad in a bikini.

The Sound of Trumpets completes the trilogy of political comedy that began with Paradise Postponed. When the sitting Tory MP for Hartscombe is found dead in scandalous circumstances, the New Labour Candidate is given the perfect opportunity for power.

Hardback, dust jacket has a plastic cover, note to receiver on Christmas 1998
