Taut and tense political drama wrapped in American history and tradition. A solid and compelling journey. --J. A. 'Jack' Kerly, author The Hundredth Man
I m confident that this will be Rick Robinson's third consecutive, award winning, book. His writing skill and lifetime as 'insider you need to see' shine through with a riveting novel that keeps us on the edge of our seats. --Don McNay, syndicated columnist and Huffington Post Contributor
I maintain that the best storytellers hail from Kentucky and Rick Robinson is among them. A political insider in the Beltway and the Bluegrass, Robinson masters the vernacular of both. Anyone who knows anything about Kentucky politics--and Robinson does--knows it's often stranger than fiction. Once again, he has crafted a page-turning, can t-put-it-down-until-the-end, political thriller. Manifest Destiny is his best yet --Vicki Prichard, scriptwriter, Emmy award-winning doucmentary, Where the River Bends --Vicki Prichard, scriptwriter, Emmy award-winning doucmentary, Where the River Bends
