Patterson's thrilling tale about power politics is just in time for the primaries this year. Senator Corey Grace, a charismatic veteran from Ohio, is competing against Senator Rob Marotta of Pennsylvania and the Reverend Bob Christy for the Republican nomination. As they stump across the country, the candidates must contend with racism, terrorism, poor economic conditions, and more. Michael Boatman performs with aplomb, never missing a beat and never becoming overly wrapped up in the layers of emotion Patterson has created. Patriotism is at the fore, as is religion, as Boatman carefully portrays the various characters. This is more than a political thriller--Boatman's performance draws the listener into politics and its rhetoric. M.B.K. 2008 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
