The economy is in shambles, the people suffer in desperate poverty, a communist insurgency is growing in the countryside. Meanwhile, scheming members of the aristocracy, as well as Floresco's most trusted cabinet ministers and sinister forces from abroad plot the downfall of this brilliant, charismatic, but flawed, leader. His only remaining allies seem to be his idealistic, Oxford-educated daughter, Conchita, and his venal, ambitious wife, the First Lady. In the midst of this explosive mixture, Conchita has fallen in love with the wealthy nephew of one of Floresco's most vocal critics. While Floresco himself has a rare soft spot in his heart reserved for his daughter, the First Lady has no such weaknesses... The First Lady is a gripping and unforgettable tale of lust and intrigue, love and redemption - and particularly recommended reading for the world's remaining dictators....
