Description - The Mandarin Code by Steve Lewis

Politics peeled bare. The second darkly satirical thriller from the authors of The Marmalade Files. POLITICS JUST GOT DEADLY. A body pulled from the murky waters of Lake Burley Griffin links Canberra, Beijing and Washington in a titanic struggle where war is just a mouse click away. Veteran reporter Harry Dunkley is chasing the scoop of his career, hunting for his best friend's killer. Navigating treacherous political waters where a desperate minority government edges ever closer to disaster, he delves into a cyber world where there are no secrets. Friendship and loyalty give way to betrayal and revenge as Dunkley stumbles into the sights of the mandarins who wield real power - and who'll stop at nothing to retain it. Political insiders Steve Lewis and Chris Uhlmann bring biting wit and behind-the-headlines insights to this sharply observed sequel to the bestselling The Marmalade Files, once again lifting the veil on the lust and lies that stain the corridors of power. Praise for THE MARMALADE FILES: 'A banquet of bastardry' Daily Telegraph '[A] cynical, opinionated, lively gallop through the landscape of contemporary Australian politics' Sydney Morning Herald 'This jokey look at the goldfish bowl of Canberra politics takes the world we know, adds a spy story and feeds in some serious issues like our relations with China and the US' Jennifer Byrne, Australian Women's Weekly 'A joy-ride through an all too recognisable federal parliament ...Lewis and Uhlmann use the familiar circus of malevolence and blunted expectations to draw the reader into the bigger story of Australia and its place on the perilously shifting ground between China and the US' Weekend Australian 'A rollicking good story' Good Reading
