Vince Cable: Open Arms

An explosive political drama - from Whitehall to the slums of Delhi - by Vince Cable, a politician with first-hand knowledge of the intrigues and machinations he writes about.

Kate Thompson - glamorous housewife turned-MP - surprises everyone with her meteoric rise at Westminster. When Kate is sent as a trade delegate to India, she hopes it will be her moment to shine. But her efforts embroil her in a dangerous world of intrigue and betrayal...

Billionaire Deepak Parrikar - head of India's largest arms technology company - finds himself magnetically drawn to the beautiful British MP. When political hostilities with Pakistan hit boiling point, they are tasked with easing the military tensions. But as their relationship deepens, a sinister shadowy organisation threatens more than just their efforts. As they race to prevent disaster, they must fight to save themselves amid a deadly game of rivalries and broken allegiances.

Open Arms is an explosive thriller which circles from Whitehall to the slums of Delhi. Cable's sweeping tale combines unrivalled political detail with international intrigue, desire, and the quest for power.

I thought the event had a really good feel to it - and people couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Good luck with future events.

I'm now back at my desk after Ann Cleeves' mammoth book tour and wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for hosting such a fantastic event for us. It was a definite highlight out of the 30 events!

My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to DLF to hear Henry Bloefeld. Having looked through the programme further we wished we should have chosen more, but at least we shall try to get the books via the Library. Looking forward to seeing next year’s programme.

I attended 4 events, next year I will want to attend even more talks. 
A friend came to stay with us and she was equally impressed by the talks she attended.
