Disunity is said to be death in politics - but not in 2019. In The Surprise Party, Aaron Patrick tells how the Coalition came back from the brink.
Patrick interviews key insiders to reveal the story behind the scenes - the turning points and the cunning schemes. He covers the fall of Turnbull and the failed Dutton coup that saw Scott Morrison take his chance. When did the Coalition realise they might win? How good is Morrison at plotting? Is chaos behind them now, or is there more to come?
This is a pacy, gripping account of how politics was turned on its head - several times.
Aaron Patrick is the Australian Financial Review's senior correspondent, covering politics and business. His books include Downfall- How the Labor Party Ripped Itself Apart and the bestselling Credlin & Co- How the Abbott Government Destroyed Itself.
