"The Next President" is a thrilling, fast paced book. Realistic? Not especially, it's hard to imagine all of the elements coming into play that perfectly. However, it is a page turner and I could not put it down.
How much do you love your child? Would you kill for him or her? If someone must die, who will it be? What lengths will you go to for love? For honor? And when your back is against a wall, do you cave in, do the deed, or fight back with all you've got? What made this an excellent book instead of just another political thriller was that many of the characters, even the minor ones were so well developed...I'd recommend this book, if you are up for something thrilling but unrealistic.
