It's late spring 1990, and a love affair is flourishing between Ivor Tesham, a 33-year-old rising star of Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government, and Hebe Furnal, a stunning North London housewife stuck in a dull marriage. On the eve of Hebe's 28th birthday, Tesham decides to give her a present to remember. Years later, this gift will ruin his career, his family, and his life. Set amid an age of IRA bombings, the first Gulf War, and sleazy politics, The Birthday Present is the gripping story of a politician's dramatic fall from grace.
