*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.
`There are some novelists who, by instincts or study, understand perfectly the independent components of a thriller. Stanley Johnson is one of them.' * Daily Telegraph *
