I don't think I've ever been disappointed by a Michael Dobbs novel. They are easy to read, entertaining, gripping, and most of all, credible.

'The Touch of Innocents' is no exception. Mix politics with money, power and coverups and you have the basic plot, but the twists and turns will keep you guessing.
