Review:

'"A Scandalous Man" is a compelling book, its political sophistication made luminous with wisdom, sympathy and brilliant story-telling'Bernard Cornwell`While Esler's story is sweeping in scope and complex both politically and emotional, it's always accessible and fast-paced'Daily Mirror`This is a cracking story, well told, with a conclusion that is as shocking as it is inevitable...Can't wait for the next one'Daily Express`...tautly plotted and thoroughly entertaining narrative which neatly dovetails fictional characters with historical events'Daily Mail`...an acute and poignant account of the impact politics has on flesh and blood'Arena`'A tale for our time.' Belfast Telegraph
