“People’s opinions don’t matter because it’s money that controls Congress, not voter will.”
Some people will kill to keep their power, and one man just has. The aftermath of the shooting on the steps of the Capitol has the nation on edge, and Michael Bennit and his staff are forced to deal with the trauma as they move into the beginning of the new Congress. Now a martyr in the cause of reform, he has become the influential national figure that the political parties and the president-elect have long feared.
With the elites in Washington terrified of the change the independents in the House of Representatives bring, lobbyist James Reed must scramble to find a way to maintain his stranglehold on the political process. As Bennit’s old enemies defect to become his new political allies at an alarming rate, he realizes the one-time unknown social media candidate could do the unimaginable ― become the Speaker of the House and third in line for the presidency.
As the media swarms and tempers flare in Congress, journalist Kylie Roberts begins a quest of her own ― to find the man behind the shooting and bring him down. With the help of the mysterious Terry Nyguen, she will leave no stone unturned in search for the truth, but will the nation, now brimming with fresh optimism, be prepared for where that path leads? Will any of them be ready for the ultimate betrayal?
The third book in The Michael Bennit Series, The iSpeaker follows the plight of four people caught in the crossfire of the money-based political system and the will of the American people. Together with his former students, Bennit will embark on an ambitious mission to organize citizens to reclaim their government, but is the allure of money in politics too great for any politician to resist?

Reviewed by Melinda Hills for Readers' Favorite Growing political intrigue, raging emotions, and uncertain relationships plague Michael Bennit and his staff as The Michael Bennit Series continues in Book 3, The iSpeaker, by Mikael Carlson. Recovering from an assassination attempt, Michael, Chelsea and the rest of the staff work hard to unite the new iCongressmen before the beginning of the new session of Congress. Kylie, Michael’s girlfriend, is convinced James Reed, the powerful lobbyist, is behind the shooting but can’t put the clues together to prove it. As their relationship is strained, Michael and Kylie pursue separate paths that will hopefully converge again. From near isolation to a position of power within the new Congress, Michael strives to achieve the change in politics he has been advocating, but there are still hidden factors working against his efforts as well as a new President who intends to limit the power of the legislative branch. In a town where trust is all but nonexistent, can Michael really have any faith in those around him? The American public is fed up with politics and is growing increasingly frustrated with the lack of positive action from the House and Senate. Mikael Carlson taps into that feeling as his series about Michael Bennit continues in Book 3, The iSpeaker. Mikael Carlson provides us with a hero we not only appreciate in the books, but one who also speaks to our desires for a real life politician willing to stand up to the status quo in Washington. Not only are these books entertaining and engrossing, they also offer an easy to understand look into politics – historically and in present reality. Well worth reading for simple enjoyment, the added bonus is the food for thought The iSpeaker provides.
