Backbench MP Tom Goodfellowe is caught up in the search for the new Dalai Lama in this highly original and compelling thriller from the author of GOODFELLOWE MP and HOUSE OF CARDS – now reissued in new cover style.
Tom Goodfellowe is the unlikeliest of political heroes. An MP whose career has already been consigned to the scrapheap of history, with a private life that staggers between confusion and chaos... And it’s all about to get worse.
A new Dalai Lama is born. The infant god-king of Tibet. And around the child explodes an international conspiracy that will carve a trail of death from the slopes of Mount Everest right to the heart of London’s Chinatown.
Goodfellowe becomes drawn into a murderous race against time and against sinister sources within his own government. On the outcome will hang the fate of one of the world’s great religions – and Goodfellowe’s turbulent personal life. Because someone, someone very close, is betraying him at every turn.

Michael Dobbs was at Mrs Thatcher’s side as she took her first step into Downing Street as Prime Minister, and was a key aide to John Major when he was voted out. In between times he was bombed in Brighton, banished from Chequers and blamed for failing to secure a Blair-Major television debate. He is now one of the country’s leading political commentators.From AudioFile:
Author Michael Dobbs, former Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party of England, is best known to readers as the author of the BBC series "To Play the King." The current book also features lots of political high jinks, as well as a British MP who lives up to his name of Goodfellow. Two other important characters are the Dalai Lama and his infant reincarnation. Well-known British actor Michael Kitchen, who appeared in the BBC series, offers a skilled reading that captures this tale's drama and suspense. He uses cadence, delivery style and vocal quality to keep the large cast identifiable. A tale of intrigue expertly delivered.
