Reviewed by Dianna Skowera for Readers' Favorite Jeffrey Royer’s “The Mercy Project” is a well-planned, suspenseful, political thriller that doesn’t cut corners on detail. Henry Pendelton is the carefree college-aged son of famous Senator Daniel Pendelton and his family has been prestigious D.C. area socialites and political figures for years. One surprise visit home, however, changes Henry’s world forever when he witnesses a crime that is deeply rooted to a powerful national secret. Suddenly in possession of a highly classified secret that even the most powerful elected official would kill for to keep quiet, Henry knows he must prevail in spite of overwhelming circumstances and blow the lid open on the nation’s biggest conspiracy. How can a college student blow the whistle on high level government corruption? How can an unarmed, beer drinking kid survive assassins without the luxury of fleeing to the police who are also looking for him? Henry finds himself lost in a sickening isolation similar to John Grisham’s lead characters of “The Pelican Brief”. If you think it has all been done, hold that thought and read Royer’s “The Mercy Project”. Amidst today’s political woes and economic crisis in our nation, Royer weaves an eerily plausible conspiracy that chills to the core. Jeffrey Royer excels in creating dirty, nasty, despicable villains that make you vow to follow politics more diligently. It is refreshing when a work of fiction can not only entertain, but leave you with a moral. “The Mercy Project” reminds us to keep an eye on both government and grandma; never take either for granted. Jeffrey Royer proves he will be around for quite a while with the quality of this witty, yet no-nonsense debut novel. Read “The Mercy Project” and be careful who you vote for.

Really Enjoyed this Book! Well-plotted and kept me wanting to read more. Without giving away too much of the plot, I was very impressed by the character development, especially Marcus, who is very complex and multi-dimensional. The dialogue was realistic and plausible. At times I laughed out loud. The ending was great! You will not be disappointed with this book.

I picked up this book because I am a fan of political thrillers, and I'm happy to say that this novel does not disappoint! Jeffrey Royer quickly pulls the reader in, and I found myself on the edge of my seat for much of the story. There are many plot twists and turns, with realistic scenarios and witty dialogue. This book would appeal to most who enjoy a good thriller, but I found it especially relevant given the climate of today's healthcare reform debate. Without giving away too much of the plot, it's scary to think about what our own government might be capable of. I am an avid reader of fiction, and I would compare Royer's writing style to some of the best, including John Grisham, James Patterson and Tom Clancy. You won't want to put this book down!
