Review:

‘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 and a debased media. Michael Dobbs does for Westminster skulduggery what Agatha Christie did for the country house murder. He knows what we like and he knows how to spin a rattling good yarn.’
Sunday Express

‘Splendid, as good as anything Dobbs has done.’
Sunday Telegraph

‘Eventful and entertaining... a truly exciting Mounties-to-the-rescue climax.’
Daily Telegraph

From the Back Cover:

Thomas Goodfellowe MP has an overdraft and an absent wife, a tormented daughter and a troublesome constituency, a sensational young secretary and a drink-driving conviction, but also an overriding concern for ordinary people – a life almost too full.

Yet from his cramped apartment above a kitchen in London's Chinatown Goodfellowe sets about doing what an MP does best: Asking questions, but listening more carefully than most to the answers.

Questions about abuses. Questions about the new Press Bill. Questions which lead him into confrontation with the Prime Minister, the police – and Freddy Corsa, a desperate and ruthless newspaper proprietor who sets out to destroy Goodfellowe not only politically but financially and sexually, too.

This is a politician in new role. A parliamentary detective, intent on pursuing his investigations no matter what the personal cost and regardless of the rules. For when a man has lost everything, the rules no longer matter.
