Pretty good read if you are into political mystery.
This was my first novel by Stephen Horn and like new friends, you have to learn their special idiosyncrasies. I must say, I spent the first half of the book trying to remember who everyone was and what part they played. The last half went by a lot faster and had enough suspense and intrigue to keep me interested. All in all, this was a good book and I would recommend it.
"First rate thriller" re Wash Post.
