Phineas Finn is living quietly in Dublin, resigned to the fact that his political career is over and coming to terms with the death of his wife, when he receives an unexpected invitation to return to Parliament. He jumps at the chance and old romances and rivalries are revived.
When his adversary Mr Bonteen is murdered suspicion immediately falls on Finn, and even the friends and lovers who formerly advanced him seem only to add to his shame. The fourth novel in the Palliser series, 'Phineas Redux' stands alone as a compelling work of political intrigue, personal crisis and romantic jealousy.
In his introduction, Gregg A. Hecimovich relates the political and historical background of the time to the Phineas novels. This edition also contains a detailed chronology, further reading and notes.
