Written with the knowledge only an insider can bring, Picking a Fight is a tightly-woven and engaging political thriller about the lengths some politicians will go to for the almighty vote. Fictional as this book is, I found it eye-opening and enlightening.

A fast-paced story made more real with its cast of well-drawn politicians.

Senator Clarissa Jennings gets my vote.

The third installment of The Perpetual Campaign is a winner, just like the first two books in the series. Throughout this driving story, I wanted to punch the characters in the face. Even the women. Even the supposed "good guys." Chris Truscott has such a detailed knowledge of the workings of a political campaign that he presents a "you are there" profile of both sides of the agenda. And as I mentioned in an earlier review, he flays both parties with reckless abandon. Left, Right, Center, all portions of the political spectrum kneel before his riveting expose.

One message is clear: winning election or re-election is Job #1. Any community aspirations, altruistic objectives, and even benevolent goals come second to the almighty vote. It is always said that the candidate needs to get in office before they can do any good, but this "perpetual campaign" is fraught with people for whom being elected is paramount.

I greatly admire Mr. Truscott's writing style. His narrative is solid, descriptive situations dynamic, and people flesh and bones, with a few warts thrown in for good measure.

Thanks again, Chris, for a rip-roaring read. The only person who should be upset with you is Clarissa who, by the end of this story, (or the beginning of the next) turns 40. How could you treat her so cruelly?
