The Royal Factor by David Eckhoff is a fun fast-moving light-hearted story with a plot that lends itself to much topical parody. The lively extreme characters continuously clash in comical ways and one ends up liking them in spite of their grand plan scheming and personal foibles. Reality TV, politics, the media and the Royal Family in modern day Britain is the setting, but the main characters bring an animated warmth to the story. Don't be put off by the cover, which unfortunately is somewhat confusing and doesn't convey the comic liveliness of the tale.
