You've got to check out TheCommittee! It's a political thriller jam packed with scandals, plot twists,and conspiracies. This page turner is definitely worth binge-reading. I read this book in just a coupledays. Hill's storytelling style is as engaging as it is enticing with itsnonstop crazy twists and turns. Political drama is definitely a popular themein pop culture right now, and The Committee fits right into the cooltable. The dynamics are as strategic as that of House of Cards andCamille is as cunning as Scandal's Olivia Pope and as ruthless as Howto Get Away with Murder's Annalise Keating.
But what sets Hill's story apart isits underlying theme of fantasy. This isn't your wand waving type of fantasyeither.The Committee delves into the spiritual world of witchcraft, premonitions, and prayer. The fictional "Committee" is akin to theuber-taboo Illuminati. The secret society is led by a group of creole women ofa New Orleans family. Hill masterfully creates this incredible supernaturalworld of magic and mystery.
Besides the juicy story, it's justnice to read about humanized black characters. Female black characters havealways been overlooked. It's only now that we have several brown skin leadingladies running prime-time. Hill's characters are beautifully flawed, relatable,and enjoyably messy.

"When the bomb drops?" Camille asked curiously.
"Yes, my dear, when. It's inevitable," Lazarus said in a casual tone. "It's only a matter of time."
~ THE COMMITTEE
As we have come to expect from author Terry E. Hill THE COMMITTEE takes readers on an entertaining dance of intrigue and power, and what some will do in order to get what they want.
Thankfully I received a review copy of the book before its release, and I'm glad to be able to share others what I believe is probably one of Hill's best works to date. We are able to meet Gideon Truman, an individual who is good at his job and loves what he does but has to balance his life thinking about those he loves. One of the people who is on his radar is Camille Hardaway. She's not just a woman in a position but a woman who commands respect and is using to getting what she wants---but at what price?
The dance we see between Gideon and Camille is interrupted at times because of other forces, and as we are able to see how The Committee is able to step in and exert its own will the stakes become higher for anyone who might stand in its way.
This is one of those books that seem to have it all: the family and societal drama we see playing out in the world today, the power struggles that are seen and unseen around us and the individuals who are willing to risk everything for the sake of the truth: whether they can truly win in the end or not.
Definitely a book that is sure to have readers talking long after they finish, THE COMMITTEE is literary rollercoaster of suspense and enjoyment from beginning to end.
She is setting her sites to be governor of the state but someone has other plans for her future weather she wants it or not. I love the twists and turns and surprises this book offers to keep you reading and on the edge of ya seat to know what happens next. I love the flash backs with the past and the present and how Terry brings it all together and weaves you through to greater understanding of the whats and the whys of the characters and how they come to be a part of each others lives and not. This book is a great suspense novel THAT IS A SURE PAGE TURNER and is also a favorite of P.A.G.E.S. MEN'S BOOK CLUB. Terry E. Hill is a great story teller and has not failed to keep you in his literary grips with his writing.
