My husband had read a wonderful review of this book and we had to order it because it wasn't at Barnes and Noble. But what a great read! Beautifully paced and readable, we read it out loud to each other. The premise is somewhat disturbing but engaging and exciting. Definitely one of my favorite thrillers!

You'll only like this book if you are a liberal. I wasn't far into it when the fantasy rhetoric started about the evil Republicans. But you will like it if you are a liberal. See the picks below for excellent reads that don't assume you are missing a brain...

This book was excellent - original, well thought out and well paced. With each chapter I read I'd gasp and think "wow, this could actually happen to America." It's scary to think of how much power the government really has. A great read!

California Democratic Senator Bobby Hart learns that terrorists plan an attack on America timed to disrupt the presidential race. Hart tries to prevent the disruption that he learns is dubbed 'Rubicon'. However, in Los Angeles the Democratic nominee dies in a suicide bombing and likewise the Republican candidate in Atlanta. --- Like most of the country, Hart assumes Islamic extremists killed the two candidates and others because suicide bombing is their MO. However, as he digs a bit deeper, he begins to believe someone else outside of the Middle East is responsible for the terrorist acts, but who remains shadowy and he fears the assassinations are the first ploy from someone planning to cross like Caesar the Rubicon only in America that river happens to be the Potomac. --- Although over the top especially with its not subtle comparisons to the Bush White House, fans of action-packed political thriller swill appreciate the aptly named RUBICON. The story line is fast-paced from the opening suicide bombings until the final revelations are revealed. Perhaps the only major drawback is the heroic senator¿s wife who exists to make Hart seem human, but only distracts from the exciting escapade driven subplots fans will skip those intrusive interludes to focus on the entertaining RUBICON. --- Harriet Klausner

I should have read this book before the Presidential election, when it had more of an immediate scare to it. Scared, that is, if you believe the possibility that forces within our own government would use the threat of terrorristic attacks to take over and usurp the constitution of this country. Alexander did a great deal of work in preparing this tale, making it believable while at the same time presenting an an idea repulsive to Americans. It carries well as a thriller, and ends in a great courtroom drama.
