Marian Hardwick has achieved everything she ever wanted to become the most powerful woman in the country. She is admired by some, but seen as ruthless, calculating and manipulative by others.
Only two men really know her – her husband and her brother – but one loves her and the other hates her. When one threatens to destroy her by revealing a secret buried deep in her past, the other can save her, but first he must break her completely.
Marian’s life spins out of control as everything she ever believed in is exposed as a lie. If she is to survive, she must confront the greatest challenge to her sanity – the truth about herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile romp August 19, 2014
This fast moving novel weaves together numerous threads to establish the history and relationships of a dysfunctional family. In doing so it also traces the transition of a lonely, ruthless Prime Minister to a compassionate grandmother due to the humanising influence of her brother, a retired high court judge. Although this novel was published in February 2013, events discussed in the narrative are surprisingly relevant to Australian politics, where a female Prime Minister has been dismissed by her own party. A quite eerie presage. We have many threats of scandal, a political coup circumvented as such in the nick of time and an abandoned child appearing early in the story line. An incredible network of events is covered over many chapters. Although we expect the story to end well before the actual finish, it is a book that is hard to put down. A worth while romp.
