In this gripping behind-the-scenes account, acclaimed journalist Aaron Patrick examines how the Coalition came back from the brink, and what that means for Australia.

Disunity is said to be death in politics - but not for Scott Morrison's Liberal Party. The Surprise Party tells how Morrison and his team took their chance and won a remarkable victory.

Patrick interviews key insiders to reveal the turning points and the cunning schemes. What did Shorten's Labor get so wrong? How good is Morrison at plotting? When did the Coalition realise they might win? And is chaos behind them now, or is there more to come?

This is the pacy story of how politics was turned on its head - several times.
