I would like to thank the publisher, Hipso Media, for providing me with this free review copy. It was touted as a book in the vein of Lee Child, et al. This book was written well, switching between scenes at the White House to a girl struggling to comprehend her friend's sudden death, to her father's job (where everyone may not seem to be who they appear), to terrorists plotting heinous deeds. There was a great deal of politicking, which is not my thing. Unfortunately, I skipped over parts of these scenes because they were hard for me to understand, which was my issue entirely, not a problem with the book. I will say that there was suspense, and it was not immediately evident who the bad guys were, which makes any book better, as the reader can figure it out along the way. I would definitely read another book by this author if he wrote one with less politics in it. The character development was good and the description of each locale was detailed without being annoying. My aunt is a big fan of political thrillers and I"ll pass this book on to her to see how she enjoys it.
