9780002254137: Whispers of Betrayal

Wayward backbencher Tom Goodfellowe makes his third appearance in the new novel of treachery at the highest levels from the bestselling author of House of Cards.

Colonel Peter Amadeus is an old soldier with a grievance. He wants an apology from the Prime Minister. But this Prime Minister does not believe in apologizing for anything.

For Amadeus it becomes a matter of honour – and retribution. Soon London is a city under siege, its lifelines cut. Then comes his ultimatum: the Prime Minister must resign – or London will be destroyed.

Only one man stands between the capital and disaster – Tom Goodfellowe, a backbench MP who can’t even sort out his own life, let alone save the lives of others. He is a man torn between ambition, honour and love – with the fate of London slipping swiftly through his fingers.

Review:

‘Terrific… as good as anything Dobbs has done… superb.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Dobbs has given us a splendid diversion, one that makes it worth chucking the TV set out of the window and settling down with a book.’ Sunday Express

‘A cracking good read – Goodfellowe is the most affectionately drawn crumpled anti-hero since Jim Hacker.’ The Big Issue

‘Brilliant… full of magnificently dark political characters.’ Daily Mail

From the Back Cover:

THE NATION ON THE BRINK OF DISASTER. ITS CAPITAL CITY HELD TO RANSOM BY ONE ANGRY MAN.

Colonel Peter Amadeus is a national hero. Veteran of the Falklands War and almost every military engagement the British have fought in a quarter of a century. But the nation no longer wants him. Thrown on the scrapheap, along with thousands of other soldiers, by a Government that cares more for cheap publicity than principle.

Amadeus feels betrayed. He wants an apology, but this is not a Government that believes in apologising. So for Amadeus it becomes a matter of honour. And retribution. He gathers a small team of old soldiers around him, and London becomes a city under siege, its lifelines cut, its Government presented with a final ultimatum. Either the Prime Minister goes, or London will be destroyed.

Only one man stands between the capital and disaster – Tom Goodfellowe, a backbench MP who can't even sort out his own private life, let alone his public duties. A man torn between ambition, honour and love – with the fate of London in his hands.

FROM THE REVIEWS OF THE PREVIOUS GOODFELLOWE NOVELS

'Parliamentary intrigue, political scandal and government treachery . . . Dobbs demonstrates why he is the master.'
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

'Goodfellowe is a modern political hero with all the welcome weaknesses we expect. . . The fun (and there's plenty of it) comes from watching honest Tom struggling with his own frailties and battling against the massed ranks of base politicians.'
SUNDAY EXPRESS

'Michael Dobbs has done it again. Another surefire success.'
IRISH INDEPENDENT
