    Page-turning and timely political thriller!

    You can wait a long time between great books. You know the feeling? Dying for a good book to curl up against the winter weather, to just forget everything and become engrossed? That's how I felt when I tripped over this one. I gave it a chance and quite honestly thought if it doesn't intrigue me, I can gift it to someone on my list. Well, when I got it, I picked it up to get a feel for the kind of book it really was. You might say that evening went before I realized. It was a page turner. Looking back over my gift list, I realized it would interest many of my friends and family, so it was happiness itself for me. I couldn't put it down without the feeling that I just had to find out what happened in the next page or two. Well that turned into 20 or more.

    It is a political thriller that was well executed and felt as though it was someone who really understood this financial fiasco we are living through. I kept thinking, why don't we hear this guy on the interview shows instead of those talking heads that frankly I am quite nauseated by. This author and his characters felt authentic and credible. Well I did gift it - to the library where I run into many folks like me who say they pick out books, week after week, carry them home and all they get is the exercise of going there and going back with only partly read books. Doesn't that sound familiar?

    Now the question occurs to me, will there be another one? Will it be a part of a series? It read like it could be, although it did not clip off the end like those that want you to buy the next book. I just wonder if there will be. I will definitely buy it and yes I did order more for the people on my gift list.
