Fun, breezy read -- murder and mayhem in Washington politics
Laura Christen is the golden girl of politics - a tall blonde Congresswoman who's just made a boldly ambitious bid to become Speaker of the House. now the media's glaring spotlight is on - and searching for Laura's secrets and scandals. Anyone who knows D.C. knows about Laura's fabulously rich backgrouns...and about her sexy young daughter's legendary love lige. But only one journalist has the real dirt, the story that would rock Washington's elite and shock the nation...And he's just been murdered.
Rex Reed says "I couldn't put it down"...Mo Dean knows Washington like no one else, in Capitol she dishes up a sassy, sexy, irresistible tale..
Short chapters, layers of plot, suspense and great characterizations keep this book moving fast. Originally, I picked it up used because it was available, but it's not my kind of book. I will, however, look for more work by author.
The story unfolds through the eyes of:
a congresswoman who wants to be speaker of the house;
columnists checking into her background;
private investigators checking her past for powerful clients;
and an old lover. Murder, politics, romance and old mysteries are all neatly resolved.
A fun read.
