Description - What Falls Apart by Torben Betts
The most important General Election for a generation. All is not well for Tom Savage, an ex-Labour minister parachuted into a safe North East constituency, trying to win hearts and minds as well as an Election. Wrestling with a heady cocktail of mid-life crisis, growing dependency on alcohol and the consequences of his Government's policies in Iraq, Tom finds himself in a Tyneside hotel bar at midnight with a newly-teetotal barman and a 'criminally attractive' woman. What could possibly go wrong?
