The Kidnapped Prime Minister based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
This book says 100 pages but it is not. More like 25. No cover effort made either. From such big publishers I feel they are taking readers for granted. Find another version if you can.
Passes an hour easily. A must read
Fast paced and fun!
Good story. I like having Hastings narrate.
