Hmm - meddling by powerful interests in a presidential election against the backdrop of increasing Chinese power and a potential Russian dictatorship (not to mention the usual charming smaller tales of corruption in the judiciary)... Perhaps it is time to give this older Grisham another read. :)
Not one of my favorite Grisham books but still interesting enough. Don't expect and action-packed thriller a la The Firm.
A good read but frustrating for non Americans to understand the culture and the motivation of these white collar criminals and the system of punishment. As well, being gay is not a scandal in this province so the concept of blackmailing someone for sexual orientation is not really a risk today.
This book is a strange one with no good guys just different degrees of bad guys. Three incarcerated judges running a mail scam and extorting money from rich closeted gays accidentally net a candidate for president. He's not just any candidate but one hand-picked by the director of the CIA and manipulated on a grand scale into winning first the nomination and then the election. I didn't like this book at first because there's nobody to pull for but I got sucked in and ended up liking it quite a bit.
A terrific plot. Amasing ending.
A realistic novel.
