About this title

Synopsis:

Michael Dobbs’ latest political hero, Thomas Goodfellowe MP, makes his second appearance in a compelling new novel by the country’s leading political thriller writer.

In the bestselling Goodfellowe MP, Michael Dobbs introduced Thomas Goodfellowe, a backbench MP with a tumultuous private life and a talent for asking awkward questions, whose concern for ordinary people and determination to expose abuses of power – inside and outside Westminster – have a habit of thrusting him into conflict with the mightiest forces in the land – regardless of the personal cost.

In Goodfellowe MP he took on a powerful newspaper baron. Now Goodfellowe is caught up in a compelling international power game played all the way from the mountains of Tibet to the back streets of Soho. At its centre is the search for a child whose fate may decide the future not only of a nation but of an entire religion – the Dalai Lama.

For the Tibetans who seek his latest reincarnation, he is a figure of immense importance: the temporal head of their country and the spiritual leader of all Tibetan Buddhists. Also seeking him are the Chinese, who see an opportunity to suppress the Tibetan independence movement by finding the child first, and replacing him with their own puppet figure.

It is as the long trail leads to the Tibetan community in Britain, and to the streets around his home in Soho, that Thomas Goodfellowe becomes involved in an affair that threatens to escalate into an international crisis.

Review:

‘Goodfellowe is a modern political hero with all the welcome weaknesses we expect... 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.’
Gyles Brandreth, Sunday Express

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