Sex, Power and Politics
A novelised account of life in New Zealand Parliament. 'This quest for the Prime Minister's job provides an unvarnished insight to the political intrigue, mendacity and down-right dirty tricks denizens of New Zealand's parliament stoop to when chasing the chalice of power. Laced with extramarital sex, alcohol, parties, travel perks and abuse of allowances, the story exposes a latent culture of perfidious and licentious behaviour.'
