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.
It is an unlikely battleground for a backbench MP - but then Tom Goodfellowe is the unlikeliest of heroes. His career is going nowhere and his main concerns are his overdraft and his unrequited love life - until a mysterious Tibetan monk walks into his chaotic world and draws him into a murderous race against time and against sinister sources within his own government.
On the outcome of this race will hang the fate of millions of people and one of the world's great religions. The odds are hopeless. But he is a born fighter. And the best of Tom Goodfellowe is yet to come.
