The novel takes the reader on a fast-paced journey of deception and conspiracy as the protagonist and his immediate family discover the realities behind what they thought was a democratic system designed to elect the best man for the job. Add in a mysterious extremist terrorist group, which will stop at nothing to influence the results, and a dangerous personal secret Pound and two childhood friends try to keep the ever-vigilant Press, and his political opponents, from finding out, and the level of intrigue and skulduggery keep the pages turning in this tense thriller.
Like his other three series, this, book one in the ‘Capstone Conspiracy’ series, will become a must-read for fans of Legg’s novels. More than just a run-of-the-mill political thriller, ‘CapWar Election’ takes a hard and critical look at real events and questions the understanding most of us have about the way the U.S. electoral system works, whilst at the same time entertaining us with a cracking tale of corruption and double-dealing. You will find you will be thinking about this one even after the novel is finished. A great read: I’ve already started book 2.
Once the candidacy gets under way, the candidates start dropping like flies, at the hands of an evil domestic terror group claiming responsibility. Add to that Pound's skeletons from his childhood, a meddling popular reporter and you have all the goods for great read! Brandt Legg has written a BRILLIANT Grisham-type political thriller in CapWar Election that will make your head swirl with questions and similarities to what is actually going on in our government today. Thank goodness book 2 in this series is out. I give this masterpiece five well earned stars!
The forward warns us that we may be offended by the political views of some of the characters. Not to worry--so far, I'm fine.
Author Brandt Legg has tackled a difficult subject--politics. He lays out what might happen down the road during an American presidential election if we Americans continue on our current divisive path.. That, my friends, is scary.
Brandt obviously knows a thing or two about politics. You will recognize composites of all your favorite political "types," as well as touches of James Bond. As a political junkie, myself, I'm enthralled by this fictional story, which is all too true in places.
Written in fast pace, dynamic style, this political thriller has suspenseful ups and downs: assassination attempt, media attack on the private life of the candidate” “turns out not many people have a perfect family. it’s yet another reason for the electorate to identify with Hudson Pound, the everyman candidate.” There is also a faltered performance at a crucial debate. “With just days before the country voted, Hudson lost his first debate.”
Looking forward to read the next book in this exciting new series.
