Book Review: Sussex Drive by Linda Svendsen

Sussex Drive begins as a comedy (Doc, the PM's director of communications, refers to ArtsCAN! as "ArtSCAM!" and to the CBC as the "Communist Broadcasting Corpse." The PM's wife has a Paris kimono that is "a gift she'd received with matching gown (and silk thong!) from President Sarkozy's wife"). It soon turns into a fast-paced melodrama with James-Bond-like intrigue.
