Would it be possible for a small village deserted for decades to resurrect overnight? Chances are. If the politicians of the opposition think it can come in handy, they might use an obscure hamlet and develop it in no time just for the sake of their electoral campaign. Would it be possible for the ailing president of a political party to govern, having been confined for decades in the opposition, and entrust the future of its exhausted political party to two MPs who hate each other’s guts? Chances are. Distorted visions, intrigues and machinations are the ingredients of the pursuit of power; of the political power and of the one an attractive woman hungers for when she feels betrayed by her lover. Her revenge will unveil political scandals and conspiracies that could destroy the government and change the political scene. Chances are the sweet vengeance can bring tumbling down leaders and side-kicks… Would the story of this book really take place? It wouldn’t, as the reality goes beyond the imagination of the writer, or would it?
