IF MEN WERE ANGELS held out the promise of being a true rarity in novels about journalists and political intrigue. Working from a solidly believable plot, Reed Karaim tells the story of Cliff O'Connell, a young Washington correspondent who finds himself in the all-too-common situation of becoming a fan of the politician he has been assigned to cover. Torn between a journalist's unwritten oath to seek the truth and allowing a thoroughly decent man to ascend to the nation's top office, the book charts O'Connell's moral and ethical dilemmas in exhaustive detail. Despite an often ponderous writing style and a dreadfully hackneyed plot twist at the end, IF MEN WERE ANGELS is an enjoyable and engaging story for anyone who enjoys fiction about politics.
