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.
