This was another book I had difficulty finding once I had read it. Another action packed political thriller. Read it.

Marilyn Quayle and her sister Nancy Northcott have attempted to write an insiders' work of fiction, filled with political intrigue, about Washington D.C. In their book, Robert Grant, a black candidate for re-election to the Senate from Georgia, is thwarted in his attempts by a giant conspiracy. He is accused of adultery, drug dealing and murder and there is circumstantial evidence to back up each of these allegations. His college-age son is also a target and he is framed for drug use and possession at a party given by his friends. The characters in this book tend to be one-dimensional. Grant is portrayed as an ethical man whose behavior is a model of perfection, while his enemies are totally evil, with no redeeming qualities. The characters are either very good, very bad, or too weak to resist the evil around them. The plot becomes quite unbelievable as the President of the U.S. orders that Grant be shot on sight and yet he is allowed to enter the offices of CNN and do a national broadcast. Grant's son is betrayed by a close friend, but he embraces her despite the problems she has caused. Fiction is obviously untrue, but it would be nice to think that at least the plot in a work of fiction is plausible. This one is not!

After forcing myself to stomach the absolutely horrid _Embrace the Serpent_, I sat down to read Marilyn Quayle's second attempt to butcher the English language and the public's perception of the Democratic party in one fell swoop. While she'll probably fail on the latter point (as she did in her earlier work), I will say that she succeeds brilliantly at the former in what is truly an affront to literature everywhere.
Unlike Tom Clancy, who wisely refuses to name political affiliations for his characters (although it's not too hard to guess what they are), Quayle paints every Republican in her works as a heroic, idealistic fighter for justice and freedom, while every Democrat is portrayed as bumbling, stupid, amoral (if not downright evil) and/or murderous, always placing political position and public perception above the lives of the people they are bound by oath to protect.
Clancy paints interesting characters; even his assumed-Democrat characters can just as fascinating, sympathetic, and heroic as their more conservative counterparts; Mrs. Quayle gives us nothing but cardboard cutouts and straw men.
This novel gets 1 star only because I can't give it a rating that's even lower.

I read this novel shortly after I read "Gideon's Torch". These two novels had similar themes, but this one is far superior.

This book kept me at the edge of my seat. I found the action more satisfying than the other novel I mentioned. This one had a twist of having a Republican African American Senator who was considered a prospective presidential candidate.

Many of the issues are related to politics specifically. Some laws were passed to protect the one promoting the law. There is a media outlet that is clearly biased and wanting to destroy the candidate of the opposition party. However, other issues dealt with include forgiveness and racial reconciliation.

I highly recommend this novel.

Marilyn Quayle's first novel would never have been published had it not been for her marriage to former VP Danforth Quayle; the extremely poor quality of that work should have guaranteed a permenant remission of her literary malignancy.
Unfortunately, this was not the case. This book is trite; the characters are totally one-dimensional, the dialogue is laughably BAD (nobody talks the way they do in this book; at least I hope they don't), and I can't remember a novel so unreadable that I was tempted to just give it up and return it.
This low-brow, worthless bit of propoganda for the GOP get zero stars from me.

I was able to purchase this book at a bargain basement price, and had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised, as this was an exciting and thrilling book to read.
These two sisters collaborated to write a very readable book about a political campaign for senator. Maybe I am jaded, but seeing the levels to which some of our politicians have stooped recently, I found the tactics and plot to be all too believable. OK, so maybe the international spy angle is a bit much. And maybe an incumbent Senator would not have 'friends' with capabilities such as Bob Grant's friends possessed. But, these things, as well as all the other angles, combined to make this book fun to read and rather captivating. Besides, Marilyn Quayle does have some experience with campaigns personally - maybe these things are not as far-fetched as I might think. . .

This has been the first book I have read by Marilyn Tucker Quayle and sister. At first I had a difficult time getting into the book. It was slow going. About three quarters of the way through it took of with no stopping. The similarities of people currently living and not was interesting. I almost thought I was reading about Foster's death. I am not sure I would read another written by this pair but, they sure did let it open for a continuation. Who knows.
