Douglas really shows his ability's in this novel. I bought this for my kindle fire and was hooked since the first chapter. The characters seem to connect with each other well. I definitely will be recommending this title to family and friends.

I bought this book because I some-what know the author and I like to support those who deserve a chance. Douglas definitely deserves more than a chance and I hope this "novel" finds its way into your hands... Now I'm not one to just buy a book, and before I bought the book, I knew that this was not my favorite genre... However, I am very glad to say that it shocked me how much I actually enjoyed this read!!! It went fast. And when I say fast, I mean that I couldn't put it down!! I usually leave my book at work to read on lunch or my downtime, but with this book, I actually took it home and read it before going to bed, and even there reluctantly closed it for the next day.

Devin Briar is exactly the type of person you wish our government was made of: Honest, smart, loyal, and confident if only just a tiny bit naive. I got lost in this story and followed Devin as if he were my own brother. My heart-rate raced when he got into messy situations and then exhaled when he luckily got out of them... It's a fast paced book with a disaster waiting to happen around every corner. I definitely suggest this book to anyone and everyone no matter what type of genre you're into. So don't wait, put this book on your shelf and in your hands ASAP! You won't regret it!

The author used the line in the book, when one character was describing the main character Devin Briar, saying "It is you who we never see". Well I thought it was so appropriate, I gave it a slight tweak to use to describe this type of book.

I find the vast majority of fiction books are broken into two camps, either comedy or serious. With the vast majority of them easily falling into the serious camp. I've always felt that maybe subliminally the author's by picking a serious subject are trying to show the world that they are therefore a serious author. Well Douglas Morrison thankfully blows that concept clear out of the water. He effortlessly spins a political thriller set in DC, yet with a healthy sprinkle of humor throughout to keep it real. I found myself, while riveted to the edge of my seat edge, just as likely to fall on the floor with laughter. I read 2-3 books a month for years now, and I can not remember bursting out with laughter like I did during this read, about 3 to 4 times. I actually would think things like, I know what you mean, or that's what I would have said. I was truly on the "same page" with the author and I truly believe it is because of just that, that the characters and his writing style are so easy to relate too and keep you turning the pages.

Well I only hope that some day there will be three camps of writers; the serious, the comedic and the ones who write like Douglas Morrison that blend both. At the end of this book, hell half way through actually, you wanted more of the characters and this author, thank god this is only volume 1, because I can hardly wait for volume 2! Do yourself a favor and experience this rare blend of wit and humor, before the next volume appears! Go buy Devin Briar, NOT your typical book. Thank god.
