Thoroughly researched, revealing the adventures and misfortunes that befell them both, he describes the driving ambitions of the era, and the complex, often deeply flawed individuals who were charged with carrying them out.

    Into an age crying out for new leaders stumbles the most unlikely polotical hero of all. Tom Goodfellowe is not like other MPs. His private life is a mess, his love life is abysmal, he has an overdraft and a drink-driving conviction. He also has a talent for getting into trouble. He lives in London's Chinatown, and when he is asked to help a young Chinese girl, he has no idea he's heading into conflict with the Prime Minister, the police, and the press - particularly Freddy Corsa, a newspaper proprietor who sets out to ruin Goodfellowe financially, politically, and sexually.
