The seedy side of politics is featured in this book. Hmm, one wonders if there is any side that isn’t seedy. This book provides an inside look at how a campaign for President is orchestrated. As quoted by Tom Daschle (former Senate majority leader) on the book cover, “A deft, spot-on novel that captures the underbelly where ambition and love collide with loyalty and conscience.”
Henry Hatten is well portrayed as an idealistic politico who finds his basic ethics imperiled by his work. As the communication director for an ambitious Senator, Hatten soon discovers that things aren’t always what they seem.
I couldn’t decide if the Senator running for President was supposed to be any particular ambitious driven presidential aspirant. Cynically and sadly, they all seem to have major feet of clay.
This book was hard to read on some levels as it smacks far too much of reality. The characters were not named but have many features found in well known national “characters”.
I recommend the book.
