A very complex plot that hooks you from the beginning and keeps your attention till the end. Fast paced and exciting, with little Capital Hill tidbits thrown in. Good read!

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.

Synopsis-Matthew Mercer and Harris Sandler are playing a mysterious game. It's a game almost no one know about, not their friends, not ther coworkers and certainly not their bosses who are some of the most powerful sentors and congressmen on Capitol Hill.
