    After years on Capitol Hill, I've been disappointed with the silly and simplistic works which dominate the world of political novels. They fail to capture reality. And they fail to entertain.

    That's why reading The Accomplice was such an unexpected delight. This novel crackles. The pages turn. The Accomplice offers insights into campaigns and politics that only someone with Robbins' long Washington resume could provide. And The Accomplice provides suspense and surprises that only someone with Robbins' great talent could deliver.

    I have known Charles Robbins as a Washington colleague and as an author of serious non-fiction. But not everyone with this background can pivot to produce a first-rate novel. Charles Robbins has done it. If you have any interest in the world of campaigns and politics, you will love this book!

    I can't wait for the sequel, and the movie.

    "A Must Read"

    Following are excerpts of reviews so far on "The Accomplice:"

    “. . . A riveting look at how love, lust, and murder can derail a presidential campaign. . . In the current campaign season, this thriller is a must read.”
    -- Publishers Weekly (Starred, Boxed Review)

    “Robbins . . . deftly combines a lively insider's look at campaign politics with a satirically spiked murder story. . . Robbins stocks his impressive first novel with great characters . . . The narrative flows freely and easily, the dialogue crackles, and the comedy comfortably coexists with the drama. Perfectly timed for the 2012 election, this book sets itself apart from most political thrillers with equal parts insight and imagination.”
    -- Kirkus Reviews

    ". . . Timely with condemnation, the Accomplice is a delightful political thriller that enables the audience to observe what goes on behind the curtain on a major run for the White House. Ethical politician seems like an oxymoron as even knowing to keep oneself clean fails to prevent scandalous, illegal and in this case murderous behavior from happening. Purist Henry is superb as a sort of Forty Year Old Virgin surrounded by hedonist devils who ask not what they can do for their country - ask what their country can do for them."
    -- The Mystery Gazette (Harriet Klausner)

    ". . . Robbins gets the details right, from the heat of an Iowa summer to the toll of too many bad meals consumed while on the road. This slick political novel seems perfectly timed to draw a crowd during the election cycle."
    -- Booklist
