An exotic impostor, seemingly from nowhere, Lopez has society at his feet, while well-connected ladies vie with each other to exert influence on his behalf—even Pallisers own wife, Lady Glencora. But when the interloper makes a socially advantageous marriage, Palliser must decide whether to stand by his wifes support for Lopez in a by-election or leave him to face exposure as a fortune-hunting adventurer.A novel of social, sexual and domestic politics, The Prime Minister raises one of the most enduring questions in government—whether a morally scrupulous gentleman can make an effective leader.
