Move over House of CardsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 December 2020
An exceptional work of political intrigue set mainly in 2022 (the bad news is Covid is still around) and during the 2008 financial crisis, The House follows four rising stars of the Labour Party. As a veteran of the Party so much of the good intentions subsumed by ambition rings true, and as a believer in our democracy the personal struggles between conscience and career are especially relevant. Extremely well written with some insider knowledge, and even a weekend at Glastonbury thrown in, Tom and Imogen have a political drama to leave the Michael Dobs version of House of Cards trailing in its wake. Definitely a candidate for my book of the year.

Easy to read and physically well presented.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 December 2020
Tom Watson's co-author is a journalist and it shows. I should have preferred a more literary style. I have a personal dislike of a story's being told in the present tense: "Phil comes into the House and sees Owen...." Having considerable interest in politics, I was held by the details of what goes on in parliament, and the characters were pretty interesting. I'm glad I read it but don't particularly recommend it. There are better novels around.

Dammed good for a first novelReviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 November 2020
This is a thoroughly good yarn filled with all sorts of plots and counter plots. I hope Tom you continue to write these genes of novels.
