Paperback
First Among Equals by Jeffrey Archer

First published 1984

Charles Seymour, second-born son, will never be the earl like his father, but he did inherit his mother’s strength — and the will to realize his destiny… Simon Kerslake’s father sacrificed everything to make sure his son’s dreams come true. Now it is Simon’s chance to rise as high as those dreams allow… Ray Gould was born to the back streets but raised with pride — a quality matched by a sharp intellect and the desire to attain the impossible… Andrew Fraser was raised by a soccer hero turned politician. Now it’s his turn for heroics, whatever the cost.

From strangers to rivals, four men embark on a journey for the highest stakes of all — the keys to No. 10 Downing Street. Unfolding over three decades, their honor will be tested, their loyalties betrayed, and their love of family and country challenged. But in a game where there is a first among equals, only one can triumph.

Interesting fact:
Several situations in the novel are drawn from the author’s own early political career in the British House of Commons, and Margaret Thatcher was a primary influence. Different characters become Prime Minister in the British and American editions of the book; Archer explained that this was because he found that readers in the two countries were not cheering for the same character to win. The British version also includes a Scottish M.P. that the American version omits.
