For centuries the people had lost their will to be represented by lawmakers. Politics was seen as an unfair game. Continuing to watch with disappointment in the nation's leadership, it was America that continued to take a turn for the worse; with high unemployment rates, homes being foreclosed, terrorism, and a lack of accountability by public officials. It was clear that the House of Representatives would not be able to get the support needed to turn the nation around for the better. It would take commitment to change. Maybe it was the cold midnight air, or the idea of one day returning to his rootshis love affair with government weighed heavy on the mind of one-time elected official Matt Logan. Having to make a choice, he would never be able to tell his most trusted confidants his decision. Miles away, in a crowded courtroom, a jury returned a stunning verdict against some of the finest aristocrats in history. No one ever imagined that the most well-known cities were holding a secret. It took power to run a city. It took certainty to unveil the most sophisticated crimes being watched by the world. What was safe anymore in politics? Top law enforcement agencies would love to know. But only Matt knew their deceit. On paper, a politician's situation looked good, but in the end only an Inceptor knows the true covenant that awaits him...
I love Matt! He's a great character and this book is just so much more than just another political thriller. He's got the characteristics you hope that a political role model would have, but most never live up to that kind of ideal in the end.
Cristina does a great job at crafting not only an unforgettable character, but also the world that he is set into. Yes, we can all imagine what it would be like to be sucked into the world that Matt is a part, but very few would have a direct understanding of what it's like to be part of that world- that's something that Cristina does very well.
I hope that she keeps writing because I loved the first book, and this is the second book that I've read from her, I can only imagine that she will just keep getting better as she writes!
I highly recommend this for all political thriller lovers!
