The third member of the company is Sandy Siobhan Hayes , who is there as the office trainee, getting work experience for her NVQ level 2.
She usually does all the work that the partners in the firm cannot be bothered to do, such as filling out thousands of public opinion polls in different handwritings, though she will only agree to do something if it can be twisted into one of the 'nine levels of competence' of her NVQ.
Another member of the office is the useless Clive Tom George or as Martin calls him, 'young, er, thing', who often turns publicity stunts into bloodbaths.
He first appears in series three, after Sandy leaves the company to become a nurse although due to her fiddling with the accounts, she still gets paid.
Another regular character is Maurice, the waiter at McCabe's club. Each time he serves McCabe's claret, he corrects the English pronunciation of Maurice Morris to the French Maur-ees , and each time Prentiss puts him down with a verse like "One man by circumstance is in splendour set; whilst another irons pants in a laundrette.
Go and iron my pants, Morris". In series 1, one of the running jokes is the company trying to avoid working on "The Sir Harold Dixon Account.
As the series goes on, Sandy becomes more frustrated, and in the last episode she changes jobs and starts working for Sir Harold.
However, after allegations of sleaze, Sir Harold is made bankrupt and Sandy returns to Prentiss McCabe. In series 2, another character was created, Gayle Shand, played by Tamsin Greig.
Gayle was a former employee of Prentiss McCabe and Charles's former girlfriend, with whom she had a heavily sexual relationship they often made love whilst listening to classical music.
However, the relationship fell apart after Gayle told Charles that she was already married to an insect specialist from Philadelphia. She now runs a rival firm to Prentiss McCabe, which is a much larger company, and is often trying to win Archie's contract, or is the agent of a rival client to Prentiss McCabe's current one.
For example, whilst Charles and Martin work for the PM via Archie, Gayle is the spin doctor for the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Prentiss McCabe always come up with a plan to keep Archie on their side, despite Gayle's attempts to stop them, even trying to make Charles a partner in her firm.
Also introduced was her assistant, Janice, who suspected that Gayle's personal rivalry with Charles did not lead to the best decisions. In the last episode of series 2, Gayle was leaving for America, and made one last bet with Charles.

I'd seen the film many years before and could only remember bits of it so not sure how much it ties to the book but I know I did enjoy watching it.
I would recommend this book, it is quite long but powerful and a real eye opener into the world of Americal presidential politics.
Apr 08, Ioana rated it did not like it Shelves: adventure , pulp , thriller , fiction , mystery. I've enjoyed books by Baldacci in the past, but this one is awful.
Third, the story-line has so many holes--which demonstrates Baldacci's lack of knowledge on the topics he's writing about; I didn't buy so many of the story elements; for example, in describing the way Jack the lawyer got a big deal at his law firm, his explanations were entirely superficial and could have been written by anyone who was not a lawyer, or a business person, and who had not done ANY research on the topic.
In ALL the details he provided, about law, the White House, police procedure, etc, Baldacci tried to obfuscate his lack of expertise in opaque and fuzzy dialogue, but in the end, I was left feeling that I learned nothing from his descriptions.
Rarely do I feel less literate after reading a book, but that's how I feel after Absolute Power Oct 23, Mike French rated it really liked it.
Somehow I missed this book when I started reading Baldacci. I am glad I saw it on Goodreads! It was a page turner from the start to the end.
If you haven't read it,put it on top of your "to read" list! Dec 27, Asghar Abbas rated it it was amazing. The pure power of a well-executed idea.

Many of you are aware I am a huge David Baldacci fan; however, I began my reading, with his newer, more recent books-- always anxiously awaiting the next in the series.
Over the years, I typically choose audiobook format, in order to further enhance my reading experience with his books.
However, when I find an author I enjoy, I will use Audible as a great resource to get my fix- to catch up with older books, I have missed along the way.
Here I am going from the 30th, back to the first. When reading the posting, I was quite intrigued and fascinated.
These are the books I want to read! ABSOLUTE POWER First Novel THE WINNER WISH YOU WELL THE CAMEL CLUB MEMORY MAN When reviewing my own reading list, I had not read and purchased the audible books.
ABSOLUTE POWER, offers a new recording Jan 1, and cover—the first of the blockbuster thrillers by Baldaccia book which changes the way you think about Washington.
Of course since then, we have seen plenty of scandals; however, all this was prior to. Bonus: What really makes this edition special, David tells his story at the beginning of the audio.
We all think of him as the successful, talented author he is, and the place he has earned in the literary world, as an award- winning author.
However, it was refreshing to hear how he transitioned from lawyer to writer. His hopes, childhood dreams, aspirations, and determination, despite his rejections.
His writing passion and inspiration behind his first novel, ABSOLUTE POWER. Very moving and inspirational. He has a truly remarkable gift, a talent.
On behalf of all the Baldacci fans, bloggers, reviewers, and readers-- A special, thank you for your dedication and tenacity.
Providing readers hours of reading, listening, and viewing entertainment. If you have missed his first novel, highly recommend the audio, narrated by Scott Brick.
The book is even better than the movie. Check out the list. Happy 30th Anniversary! Dec 28, RM Alwaysdaddygirl Griffin alwaysdaddyprincess rated it it was amazing.
Then I began to tire, then wilt, then couldn't wait for it to end. The problem I have with Baldacci's first book is that it didn't have enough - or any!
There was none of that here. The evil POTUS had the upper hand all the way and the good guys limped their way to the finishing line. I hope this uneven treatment is only because it's the author's debut work and that in his later books, he manages to strike that magic balance between reality and entertaining fiction.
As a member of the audience, I must feel as if the hero is winning, even if bad things happen to him or the villain looks like he's winning.

I'd seen the movie Absolute Power with Clint Eastwood then I'd decided to read the book and I thought the book was a lot better.
It follows the same plot line as the movie but it has many differences in it. It's about a long time thief named Luther Whitney who is in the middle of robbing a rich couple's home and he witnesses a murder and the man involved with it is the President This is the book that got David Baldacci started in his writing career and for a first book I thought it was his best.
It's about a long time thief named Luther Whitney who is in the middle of robbing a rich couple's home and he witnesses a murder and the man involved with it is the President of the United States.
The book was very hard to put down and full of many twists and turns. View all 7 comments. I did not enjoy the hopeless, helpless, anxious, unlucky, victim feel for most of the book.
I also had problems with the narrator. No good guy was smart enough. The bad guys kept outsmarting the good guys. And luck was on the side of the bad guys.
I never smiled while reading this book. My feelings were unpleasant. One night I had trouble sleeping because I was anxious and worried ab I did not enjoy the hopeless, helpless, anxious, unlucky, victim feel for most of the book.
