The Race - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:Richard North Patterson, Michael Boatman (Narrator) Corey Grace-a handsome and charismatic Republican senator from Ohio-is locked in a fierce presidential primary battle with the favorite of the party establishment and an influential Christian leader. A decorated Gulf War Air Force pilot known for speaking his mind, Grace's reputation for voting his own conscience rather than the party line-t... more »ogether with his growing romance with an African-American movie star-has earned him a reputation as a maverick and an iconoclast. But Grace is still haunted by a tragic mistake buried deep in his past, and his integrity will be put to the test in this most brutal of political contests, in which nothing in his past or present life is off-limits. Depicting contemporary power politics at its most ruthless, The Race takes on the most incendiary issues in America's culture wars: racism, religious fundamentalism, gay rights, and the rise of media monopolies with their own political and economic agendas. As the pressure of the race intensifies, culminating in a heated showdown at a deadlocked party convention in New York City, Grace must come to terms with his presidential ambitions and decide just how much he's willing to sacrifice in order to achieve them.

I rarely write a review on any of the audiobooks that keep me company during my daily commute. This one is different.
Great plot, read easily so you don't notice the voice (for those of you who frequent audios, you know what I mean) and it flows so easily. It's a long book - 12 discs - but kept me involved the whole time.
One of the best I've come across; already ordered another by the same author.
