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.… (més)

Not as pacy as other novels by Dobbs, and the torture scenes a bit too graphic for me, but an unusual mix of Westminster sculduggery and a spotlight on the oppression suffered by Tibet from the Chinese government. Thomas Goodfellowe is an interesting character, on his way down in his political career, bumbling through his private life, but a powerful and resourceful manipulator. ( )

It is a long time since I have just read a series by an author but there is something about this series I like. It is an easy read. The hero wants to do the right thing even in the difficult world of politics. It discusses political corruption but allows for not everyone to be involved. It is funny in places. ( )

I was very disappointed by this second volume in the chronicles of Thomas Goodfellowe MP. Its predecessor, simply called 'Goodfellowe MP' was very entertaining and offered a salacious insight into the life of a former minister, now consigned to the back benches and struggling to adjust to his reduced status.

This volume was far less assured and revolved around a rather poorly framed, and basically distasteful, plot involving the death of the Dalai Lama. There were some enjoyable scenes in and around the Westminster village, but it was difficult to avoid the feeling that Michael Dobbs had rushed this out at great speed in between writing proper books.
