Summary: Newly elected Prime Minister Francis Urquhart takes on the new King, in the controversial No 1 bestselling second volume in the Francis Urquhart trilogy -- now reissued in a new cover. After scheming his way to power in 'House of Cards', Francis Urquhart made a triumphant return in 'To Play the King' -- a Sunday Times No 1 bestseller that became a hugely successful BBC TV series, with Ian Richardson resuming his award-winning role as Francis Urquhart. Its highly controversial and uncannily topical storyline -- in which the role of the monarchy in modern Britain comes under scrutiny as Prime Minister Francis Urquhart threatens to expose Royal secrets when his plans are blocked by the idealistic new King -- coincided with a huge increase in public interest in the future of the Royal Family following a series of Royal scandals.
