Backlash can be enjoyed on many different levels. As a page-turner, it keeps you on the edge of your seat from the initial...well, I won't spoil it for you....right up to the denouement. But Backlash has a deeper subtext, almost a platonic dialogue being conducted between the lines, that addresses many of the key political concerns of our time without ever lecturing or slipping into the abstract. As we become engaged by the highly colorful characters, we grapple with the political issues.

An "edge of the seat"er! We need more (real) people like Jacqueline Marie James who will take a stand against some of the idiocy foisted on us by our elected officials (of all parties) to further their own selfish goals. So pertinent to what is going on today in America. But not so political that you can't relate to the characters and get caught up in the emotion of the story. A great read--I didn't want to put it down. Loved it!!!

Backlash was enjoyable to read on a variety of levels. The characters were well developed. Jacqueline's years in the family business served her well, when she was thrown into managing a terrorist attack directed at her company, soon after taking over as CEO from her late father. Her grit and innovative ways of solving complex issues were evident. The storyline, including special interest groups, reporters, environmental radicals and Washington politics, was easy to follow.

Didn't have to skip sections for inappropriate language or sexual conduct. This proves a good story can be written without adding trashy content.
