"Stanley Johnson's new satirical thriller KOMPROMAT purports to tell what really happened in the run-up to those two recent political earthquakes, the Brexit Referendum in the UK in June 2016 and the US Presidential Election in November of that year. What was the real reason, for example, Britain's Prime Minister, Jeremy Hartley, included a commitment to hold an In or Out Referendum on Europe in the Conservative 2015 Election Manifesto? What was the true story behind Ronald C. Craig's unexpected triumph in the US election? Stanley Johnson's sweeping satire follows the intertwined fortunes of the leader of Britain's Leave campaign, former Cabinet member Edward Barnard and brash showman Presidential candidate Ronald Craig. KOMPROMAT reveals how the devilishly cunning machinations of Russian President Igor Popov succeed in crucially influencing the electoral outcome on both sides of the Atlantic. Plot, counterplot and subplot are deftly woven into an "alternative" account of events which ends as Britain's new Prime Minister, Mrs Mabel Killick, seeks her own mandate to deal with Brexit-related turbulence."--Amazon.com.
