Former Prime Minister, Harold Connor, has been waiting for twenty-five years to do the right thing. His life has been devastated by the consequences of his own actions – he has lost his wife and lived in the shadow of the biggest political secret in the world, and for all those years he has been looking for the opportunity to put things right.
When media tycoon Kyle Andrews starts filming a talent show to find the next generation of politicians, Harold Connor finally sees his opportunity, conveniently concealed within a plan to derail a concept set to make a public mockery of the British political system.
But the circumstances change and when Connor’s own son becomes the new Prime Minister, whose coalition government begins to implode, the talent contest becomes a route to power for all players. As the end game approaches, Harold Connor sets out to control the situation to suit his own needs, determined not the let anybody stand in his way.
In his bid to ‘do the right thing’, he manipulates the lives of all of those around him – the beautiful and unpredictable political student, the university professor, the ex-convict, even his own son – all those who had placed their trust in him.
In a tale of secrets, lies and deception, the need for power and control can only lead to ultimate tragedy.
