Summary

London, 2044. Britain is a republic. President Jan Polak has vanished overnight from Buckingham Palace, just weeks before an election. Has he been kidnapped? Or even killed? One man is determined to find out - as soon as he's had his breakfast. His name is Pond. Howie Pond - the president's official spokesperson and wannabe secret agent.

With just a love of James Bond films to guide him, Howie sets out on a mission to solve the missing-president mystery. But with his journalist girlfriend, Britt, soon onto the story, the race is on to see who gets to the truth first.

A rare comedy novel that is actually funny

Here is a haiku review of ‘We have Lost the President’:

Escapist nonsense,
Jackson nails the comic tone.
Long live Pelican

Absolutely Brilliant

Loved it. Listened to it twice over in quick succession and will probably listen again when book 4 is released.
The silly humour is intensified by Gildart's narration.
Loads of light hearted fun in this story.

Amusing

Cute story set in 2044 England, which is now a republic after revolution sends the royal family to exile in Florida. A bit of cozy mystery, a bit of farce. Gildart Jackson’s narration is terrific, as always.
