*TPB EXPORT EDITION* Stanley Johnson's latest political thriller Kompromat claims to recount the story of the most audacious geo-political coup since Genghis Khan and his hordes swept across Asia into Europe. The UK Referendum in June 2016, on Britain's membership of the EU, was a political showdown a British prime minister thought couldn't be lost. But the next morning Britain woke up to a shock result. Kompromat explores the skullduggery that might just have gone on behind the scenes.
Bringing together the genres of satire and thriller, Johnson writes about events that seem incredibly close to the truth, from a US Presidential election that seems unwinnable, to Russian intereference in that and a UK referendum. The well-paced plot and humour will keep you laughing, even though fiction seems so close to fact.
