Meet the Author

William Charles resides in Washington, DC with his wife and two children. An unrepentant long time Washington insider, one might conclude the disturbing nature of his novel is reflective of an overdose of politics.

    WOW!!! A real page turner

    Loved the style of writing. Not too many charactors. It had me wondering from the very beginning. Then the ending blew me away...a real shocker. I would definitely read more books by this author.

    Very interesting???

    This is an overall interesting book, but the ending kind of left me scratching my head. I still have no idea who actually died!

    Rarely do I not finish a book but, this is one of those few occasions. I tried. I read the first 100 pages but, just couldn't bore myself any longer. This is not a good book for me but, it might be for you so, give it a try.

    Intriguing but ... wha?

    I did not care for the rambling style of the 'journal' in the early chapters but then, while the writing got better, the plot turned predictable. Then the ending happened, leaving me completely confused. I won't give away the twist but .... how can that be logically possible?
