    Try as I might I just couldn t really get into this book The story sounds promising the meteoric rise of a female MP, a sinister plot involving defence weapons with a bit of romance thrown in but, for me, the writing style was a bit dry and plodding so I found I could only manage a couple of chapters at a time before becoming bored with it.It did give an interesting insight into the world of British and International politics but you definitely come away with the feeling that most of the people who are in positions to serve the country are mostly just serving themselves The bottom line for me was...

    Meh I m not really a fan of this book, to be honest The summary sounded really good and I was excited to read it, but it was far political than I was expecting, and this made it incredibly hard to read.For me, this novel never really got going It was just a clear political statement from start to finish, and to be perfectly honest, it was dull The only exciting parts of the story were the interactions between Kate and Deepak, but even these were few and far between They were also completely unrealistic Kate announces that she s in love with Deepak after meeting him what, once Maybe twice It was well written, don t get me wrong, and I think it had the potential to be a really interesting story, but it there was just too much filler stuff I don t know, maybe it s ju...

    Open Arms sets out to be a political thriller but fails to excite and presents a depressing view of the workings of government It also shows the danger of predicting events in the near future but then the author was not the only one who expected a crushing election defeat of the opposition by a female Conservative Prime Minister following the Brexit vote.The plot had some interesting potential, but the heavy narrative style read like a report of events so there was little feeling of suspense The characters came over as types not people and even in intimate situations sounded as if they were summarising their position rather than conversing.I would have liked much of an insider s f...

    Mr Cable knows politics at local and government level He know the arms business and quite a lot about India.He does not know how to write a thriller.This book has no drama, no humour.The characters are from a dusty shelf in an old Woolworths Hackneyed phrases abound They got in under the radar They must have an inside source The bad guys are unsavoury sma...

    A decent read, the book starts slowly and builds as the various characters and storylines converge.Vince Cable uses his knowledge of ministerial life to put a decent storyline together.The only criticism is there are too many subplots and at times made it difficult to follow parts of the story.

    Political Thrillers are not really my cup of tea if I am being honest but I enjoyed the majority of the book There are an awful lot of disparate characters and in the early stages it is a little confusing as to who is who and what they have to do with the story but it soon begins to gel I was impressed with how well Vince Cable brought all the various strands and characters together at the end of the book About halfway through I did start to lose heart and think that it was just going to be a jumble at then end but it has been brought together very well and ties up, moderately well.From a personal enjoyment perspective this was only a 3 Star read however I felt compelled to give an extra star for the craftmanship in dealing with this complex tale and bringing it to a logical conclusion.From the initial description of the book and the front cover you may think that this book centres strongly on the female protagonist of the novel, Kate Thompson However, in my opinion, the main thrust of the book deals with the Indian side of the story particularly Deepak Parrikar and his family There is also quite a lot of attention given to Steve Grant and Shaida Khan and family at the UK end of the deal So much so that it appears that the character of Kate has only been picked on for the attract to try and woo a certain sub set of readers in Whilst she is an integral part of the story she is not the main focus.Set in the near ...

    A first novel from a man with much experience of the worlds he portrays A political thriller taking in arms dealers, local and national politics in Britain, India and Pakistan, islamism and a bit of business skullduggery on the way In some ways it is a typical first novel Cable tells a good story there needs to be less telling and showing Characters are reasonably drawn, but not sufficiently differentiated in dialogue and his writing reflects the detached bonhomie of his public persona the moments of tension and high dram barely feel tense or dramatic at all.There is great plausibility in much of the story The protrait of a fictional local party association will have activists a...
