‘A satirical fantasia … In Marr’s novel, full-blown farce and well-salted insider gossip edge into a sharper, if not wholly serious, look around the darker corners of the UK state … The Machiavellian melodrama of House of Cards … veers into The Thick of It, and then off into the shadows where fixers out of John Le Carre lurk … here Marr excels … Lively and enjoyable.’ Independent
‘Andrew Marr is a marvel … what makes ‘Head of State’ worth reading is that Marr is unbuttoned … witty and wicked’ Adam Boutlon, New Statesman
‘The hottest thriller in town’ Evening Standard
‘Brilliant’ Mail on Sunday
‘Riveting’ Sunday Times
‘Marr is a stylish writer … his cast of characters are all lively, his brief sketch of King Charles III is a mini-masterpiece’ Sunday Express
‘I bow to no one in my admiration for the author of this book … there are flowing passages and telling phrases that one would expect from such an accomplished writer … the jokes are excellent and the inner workings of government … are described with complete accuracy’ Guardian
‘The characterisation is excellent … There are few shrewder observers of Westminster and Fleet Street than Marr, and his deft touch is apparent throughout … Marr obviously had fun writing it, and communicates some of that fun to his readers’ Sunday Telegraph
