Summary:
"The difference between victory and defeat in the Electoral College comes down to 259 votes in West Virginia.

A state senator desperately fights back against a lawsuit that is pushing his family’s company toward bankruptcy.

A vice presidential candidate’s adulterous affair threatens to explode in his face and burst into the world’s headlines with devastating consequences.

A ruthless billionaire will stop at nothing to avoid facing justice for his crimes.

A small town prosecutor stumbles upon a plot to win the election by any means necessary: High-tech manipulation of electronic voting machines, creative interpretation of arcane election laws, bribery, blackmail and even murder.

And Rikki Gudivada and Dave Anderson – two star-crossed former lovers from opposite sides of the political fence – are drawn back together as the battle rages for West Virginia’s 5 electoral votes, racing to solve a murder that imperils the very heart of America’s constitutional system while each struggles over the same question:

Is anything more important than winning the White House?"


My Review:This book has so many elements of twists, turns and surprise! I'm not much of a person for politics or law, but this book was easy to follow and made sense to me. The political and legal jargon was used in ways that made it understandable so as to comprehend the different things being played out in the book. I like how the characters started off independent and then converged on a single scheme. This book has everything, from conspiracy to love, and from scandal to murder; just when you think you know what's going to happen, you're taken to a fork in the road.

"For some reason, one of Benjamin Franklin's most famous saying invaded his consciousness: 'Three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead.'" (kindle loc. 505)
