Reviews

'Sharp, funny, warm - and charmingly odd... If only all fiction emerging from Westminster could be this rewarding' The Guardian

'A funny, observational comedy on the pitfalls of office life [that] takes a darker turn' Sunday Express

'Macdonald's exploration of human motivation and interaction makes for a wonderful novel that reminds that we're none of us islands, that we're never as good - or as inexcusably bad - as we might think' Litro

'A witty and well-observed contemporary drama' Good Housekeeping

'Intriguing... an incredibly well-written debut novel' Closer

'Sharp and entertaining' Carys Bray, author of A Song for Issy Bradley

'A quirky rom-com set in the House of Commons... this one gets my vote' Red, Best Summer Beach Books 2017

'A witty, dryly observed love story, but also an eloquent lament on the desperation of contemporary metropolitan life and all the painful injustices of romantic interaction that beset millennials today' Erotic Review

'A deftly crafted and original novel by an author with a genuine flair for compelling storytelling' Wisconsin Bookwatch Magazine

'The Threat Level Remains Severe, shining a sly light into the mundane backrooms and office romances of the corridors of power, is a stylish, bleakly funny and sad, acutely observed contemporary drama' Shena Mackay, author of The Orchard on Fire

'Surely one of the most insightful, honest and reassuringly humane tales of the true workings of the Mother of Parliaments in all its shabby, slapdash and vainglorious reality' Robert Edric

'Confident, funny and poignant. Macdonald's world draws the reader in irresistibly' Jane Rogers

'Deliciously erotic and hugely readable, with some wonderful moments of illumination' Maureen Freely
