5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Could not put it down 2 May 2012

It may be old news now, but the expenses scandal will probably be seen as a watershed moment, and this is the inside story on how it unfolded. It captured my attention like a thriller - I wanted to know what happened next. Clearly well researched and excellently written

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 30 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
Difficult one to put down this as I really enjoyed it. Great insight into how the telegraph acquired, planned and broke the MP's expenses scandal. I would really recommend this book. t reads more like a modern day thriller than an account of a true life scandal. Still they do say truth is stranger than fiction...

1.0 out of 5 stars Was this written against a deadline? 15 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
The biggest scandal in a generation deserves far better than this.

I wonder whether the authors were under a similar journalistic deadline to finish this book as they are in the newspaper trade. I can only imagine that other reviewers have rated it so highly because of the importance of the subject, rather than the quality of writing.

This was a hugely important political story, but from the beginning it is clear the writing style adopted is more akin to a poorly written thriller - so if you like Dan Brown and his style of writing, you'll probably enjoy reading this too.

Also it would have helped if the authors had made it clear from the start what the "rules" were concerning MP's expenses, ie. what was and what wasn't allowed. Because this wasn't made clear, there was no reference point to determine how outrageous each MP's claims were.

And do we really need to know the career histories of each journalist involved in the story, what meals they ate whilst holed up in their self-styled "bunker", and whether they were having babies during the investigation - please spare me the nappy-talk!
