Description - Ten Minutes to Turn the Devil by Rt. Hon Lord Douglas Hurd
As an MP, Douglas Hurd would write a new short story every year during the summer Parliamentary recess. This collection comprises ten tales, including a moving account of a family in Bosnia (The Last Day of Summer), a caper about drugrunning off Florida (A Suitcase Between Friends), and a grimly realistic Ulster vignette (Fog of Peace). Each of these stories reflects the intelligent concerns of a politician engaged in, and committed to, both the everyday world of domestic matters and at the highest level. All admirers of the bestselling THE SHAPE OF ICE will derive enjoyment from them.
