Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This novel makes me appreciate being an American even more than I already do! The idea that one man could have the greed and access to power enough to take out a President is sobering! The plot was satisfyingly mysterious and kept my attention. The characters are the secret to this work. All of them are so well-drawn. The author's idea of a powerful congresswoman as Vice-President to her husband who is President is simply amazing!
The author's point of making the President appear to be weak while the VP is strong is a long shot but it fit so well for this work. He certainly made her a strong woman and gave her the strength of conviction that all of our public servants should display. My only disappointment is that the Secret Serviceman was not better rewarded in the end. He is such a strong man and so dedicated to his job of protecting the president that I really hoped for more of a "reward" for him. But, know this, that is MY idea, not his. This is a great read for it opens up Washington, D.

A political who done it You know the enemies and other twists make you want to rush to the end to get the final curtain drawn It has a chuckle or two in it which you may spot as current events. Watch your back at all times in real life. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. I rarely give up on a book before finishing it, but I just couldn't do it anymore.
I've really enjoyed other books by this author, but this one is so implausible that it just seems silly. There were times as I was reading it, that it seemed like one of my sixth grade students wrote it. Have read almost all of her books and have thoroughly enjoyed them all.
This one is very different from the others - the Las Vegas or Manhattan series especially. Did find several editing errors but choose to overlook them as I was able to figure out what the correct sentences should be. The story itself was good and actually pretty believable considering the corruption and greed in politics.
This idea that an insane egomaniac with access to money and power could actually have his opponents murdered may seem far fetched but certainly not by much. I loved the idea of money, greed, power, and betrayal vs loyalty, friendship, and love. This was not one of Donna Mabry's shining accomplishments.
I found the story situation totally ridiculous.
Even though right now all the campaigning for president is going on with unbelievable comments and promises, this was way too much to fathom. It just wasn't very good.
The challenges of power politics.. A challenging read that kept mr very much occupied as the characters changed them r actions and behaviours. Well written and timing is just about perfect as a fast script and story line demanded that you remained engag d. Characters were interesting and very real and reminiscent of both corporate power politics and the uncertainties of leadership.
I very much enjoyed this well written book. Thoughtful plot and aggressive interesting characters. Well worth a read. The writer of this novel has to learn that when writing a "political thriller" not to inject her political agenda. I really don't care if the Obama's would make out hot and heavy in the Beast. I enjoyed the writing , I just stopped reading after the many innuendos about a certain political party. I want to enjoy reading a novelnot getting upset about the bias shown by this author.
This political drama grabbed me from the first sentence. It continued to keep me intrigued throughout the entire story. The brave characters were so brave I thought they were nuts. Rachel Elaine showed a determination that I'm sure I would not be able to pull off.
Usually I'm not a fan of political novels but this was awe inspiring with a wonderful self deserved ending. See all reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
