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.
CapStone Conspiracy - book 1 - is indeed riveting. The characters are well-defined, the action is superlative and the book keeps the reader glued to its pages until the end. And, then it is time to order the next one...which I already have done.
The style of writing is perfect for me. Done with ease, conviction and determination with the plot coming together nicely. An 'ordinary Joe' is running for President...Toss in this group called North Bridgers and one is off to the races.
I also appreciated the author's fore ward that pointed out his warning on reading his book. The stage is set early on as government spending is out of control, tax reform and term limits are also on the agenda. Sounds all too familiar to me...
Most highly recommended and will start the book 2 this afternoon.
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.
