Jeremy Thorpe by Michael Bloch

The Guardian:

In the end, reading this astounding book, you have to conclude that Thorpe kept a rackety show on the road for so long in exactly the same way that Kim Philby, the Soviet spy and accessory to murder, did: by a very good performance of an old act, the confidence and smooth superiority of the old Etonian in charge of things. Thank goodness those days are long behind us.
