(From the publisher):
Tom Goodfellowe is the unlikeliest of political heroes. A Member of Parliament 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.
Yet Goodfellowe cares little for this. His main preoccupation is battling with his overdraft and his unrequited love life - until Kunga Tashi, a mysterious Tibetan monk, walks into his chaotic life and draws him into a murderous race against time. On the outcome of this race will hang the fate of not only millions of people, but also one of the world's great religions. Oh, and Goodfellowe's sex life, too...
For he can only pursue the fight by destroying those he loves the most, and even then he seems doomed to failure. Because someone, someone very close, is betraying him at every turn.
The odds are hopless. But he is a born fighter. And the best of Tom Goodfellowe is yet to come.
