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 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.

I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...

Feedback From 2015 Festival

All of us in the Hardy Society were very positive about 'our' first night and the subsequent events. I thought Tony's event with Rachel and Dinah worked very well with interesting conversations from the both of the women.

You and Paul must be very happy with the positive way Dorchester people are continuing to embrace the Festival, and in impressively increasing numbers. Congratulations to both of you.

Next year's dates are already in our diaries and we are looking forward to meeting up with you soon to discuss our involvement.
