Totally absorbing account of the (fictional) games played in Washington, DC. Enjoyable and unexpected read for the concept and resultant twists and turns in plot.
This was a great thriller. I had a hard time putting it down. From a very surprising twist early in the book, right up until the end, I was so engrossed in the plot I would worry for the safety of the protagonists. It is well-written and, I thought, carried the action seamlessly throughout a sometimes complex (in a good way) narrative. The book does a good job of weaving interesting facts about life in Congress (and Washington) with a good science mystery and a lot of close calls. If you enjoy thrillers, you will enjoy this one.
The book gets very involved at times - I found myself loosing interest but
I did finish.
A fast paced political thriller! Sometimes a game is just not a game. This is a great book! My heart raced and the pages flew by :)
Politics, gambling and murder, what more can you ask from a book? I really enjoyed this one.
