I have given this book four stars because there is no three and a half star rating, and it deserves more than three stars. It was not always easy to read; it is not a literary masterpiece. However for sheer diligence, research and insight into the toppling of our 29th Prime Minister it is commendable. Not a stone has been left unturned by Ms Savva in her unravelling of the events in August 2018. In fact she is so assiduous she even includes children's names and trivial details. Her backgrounding is exceptional and shows how deeply embedded she is in the culture and machinations of the Australian Liberal Party. The fact that she was able to get so many people open up to her about the events of August 2018 shows the trust and respect she must enjoy. She isn't content to merely examine the chronology of the events. She pulls it apart from every angle. Hence y book sometimes loses its flow as it swings back and forward in time and place. It is quite pedantic and requires considerable concentration but it is worth it for the light she shines on the workings of the Liberal Party and and the protagonists in this drama. I also found it interesting how at times she is quite partisan and others fair and balanced. This would be the challenge of writing about people you know welll and work with. The book is quite an eye-opener. It may well be a solid source for people to refer to in the future. It would have been better for this purpose if it were indexed. I'm sure the writer must have breathed a huge sigh of relief when she finished, as indeed did I.
