Searching for The Lost Symbol

Unsurprisingly, The Guardian's Mark Lawson is not happy with Dan Brown's latest.
The Lost Symbol makes 'Jeffrey Archer read like Dostoevsky in comparison'.
But what of Mark's own literary efforts?
A customer review of Going Out Live on Amazon says: 'The novel's satirical intent is undermined by his decision to give his characters the same sort of names as they would get in Carry On Broadcasting. A Northern sports reporter is called Barry Accrington, a pop star Marty Stark - unbelievably feeble. The trompe l'oeil ending is a complete cop out.'
Confucius say: What goes around, comes around.
