Intrigue, action, a little Guinness and the law... Rick Robinson is at the top of his game.—
Often a suspense series will run out of steam after a few books. This is not the case with Rick Robinson's latest thriller, Writ of Mandamus. With this book Robinson hits his full stride as he takes story threads and characters from his previous award winning novels to weave a compelling tapestry of political intrigue told with the authority of a true Washington Insider. In the grand style of Clancy and Follett, if you're a fan of this genre, this is a must read.—
Here's a piece of important advice: Don't sit down to read this book without bringing along at least a sandwich, if not an entire meal. You could starve to death otherwise. Rick Robinson is that compelling.—
