She did not come up again. Two boys... Sean Matthews stands at the bottom of George's Hill, more or less the very centre of the housing estate, with his hands on his hips.

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Après la chutte de Margaret Thatcher, la déception est de taille pour le conservateur Francis Urquart : aucun poste de ministre ne lui est confié au sein du nouveau gouvernement. Manipulateur hors pair, il va tout mettre en oeuvre pour conquérir le poste si convoité de Premier Ministre...". Chef d'oeuvre de la télévision britannique, "House of cards" est la référence des séries sur le monde politique qui inspira "A la Maison blanche", "Borgen" et bien sûr son remake américain créé par David Fincher. Ecrit par Andrew Davies (Orgueil & Préjugés), elle met ens cène un incroyable personnage machiavélique magistralement interprété par Ian Richardson (Brazil, Dark city)." (Source : jaquette)
