The Long Spoon

In 1979 a small group of new MPs enter Parliament for the first time. They have already made their plans for rising to the top in British politics. Ten years later the IRA, demoralised after years of battling against Margaret Thatcher, embarks on a plan to infiltrate the British Government at the very highest level. It will take a decade to achieve their objective but, if they succeed, it will give them unprecedented power at the highest level in Westminster.
The Long Spoon is a powerful political thriller set against the background of British politics in the 1980s and 90s; the transformation of the Labour Party, the demise of the Conservative Government and the Northern Ireland Peace Process. The story is interwoven with the real and memorable events of the time, giving it an uncanny sense of realism for a work of fiction. A brilliant story and a fantastic read.
