Summary
  • Prime Minister Robert Sutherland's committee, comprised of leading contingency planners and senior politicians, navigates the difficulties in overcoming a major national crisis
  • "In times of national emergency, a team comprised of Britain's leading experts, crisis contingency planners and the most senior politicians assemble under the name COBRA to form the committee entrusted to protect the people of Great Britain and steer the nation through the storm. Set in the heart of government during a major crisis, 'COBRA' hurls us both into the corridors of power in Westminster and the center of disaster in the crisis zone. We follow the Prime Minister, Robert Sutherland ... his Chief of Staff, Anna Marshall ... the Head of the Civil Contingencies Secretariat, Fraser Walker ... and the Home Secretary, Archie Glover Morgan ... amongst other key advisers and apparatchiks. Not only are they and their contemporaries forced to quickly contend with impossible political decisions and their ferociously pressured personal lives, but they must also be mindful of political opponents who will use any sign of weakness and any failure within the handling of the crisis as an opportunity to strike."--
