"More pros than cons with this book, so let’s start off with the cons. The story takes off quite slowly. We are 30 or more pages into the book before I felt interested enough to continue. I’m not sure if I hadn’t been assigned to read this book if I would have gotten far enough in to get hooked. To me, that’s a significant problem. But then, what might be interesting to me might not be what’s interesting to most other readers, so this could be my failing, not the book’s."
"True mastery of character development. Great depth to each character (even minor ones), and every time I had a character figured out, a new twist was revealed that made me rethink everything. "
Lance Gatsby had no idea what he was getting into when he became a fixer for the presidential campaign of charismatic Elliot Swardson, a married and closeted Republican. Navigating the dark and sexy world of politics leads Lance to rely on an enigmatic assassin who will only give the name Guy.
Some of the shine wears off Elliot when Lance realizes part of his job is to keep the presidential hopeful happy, whatever it takes. But what kind of happiness could Lance find with a cold-blooded killer?
Will Lance try to find a way to fit in Elliot’s shadow all the way to the White House, or will a conspiracy to rig the election and a family secret serve to humanize a mercenary?
