Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Richardson (Dark Horse, LJ 1/97) revisits the insidious side of politics and throws in the machinations of a charismatic cult leader for good measure. Young senator Will Sullivan and his wife, Gwen, are the ultimate 1990s coupleAsuccessful, stunning workaholics. Only one component is missing from their American Dream: a baby. Enter Dr. Harvey Bertrand, a fatherly fertility expert with a private clinic. But it quickly becomes apparent that someone is toying with the Sullivans at a national, very public levelAand the stakes include the very life Gwen carries. An imprisoned serial killer, already noted in the history books for "resurrecting" 12 chosen followers after giving them cyanide Jell-O cocktails, is claiming fatherhood of Gwen's fetus. Does Gwen carry the spawn of a demonic messiah? Richardson has a flair for taking on the challenge of a somewhat outlandish premiseAand delivering.

From Kirkus Reviews

A bizarro thriller featuring messianic cultists, power-hungry politicos, and nonstop dirty tricks from both groups. Senator Will Sullivan has his eye on the White House. His wife Gwen has hers on motherhood and doesn't care much what house she lives in as long as it has a functioning nursery. But in terms of ambition both are out-vaunted by one Wesley Dean Theroux. He wants to be the Messiah. Never mind that W.D. is in jail awaiting imminent execution for mass murder. For reasons best understood by the author, this psychos been provided with a laptop, which he uses to connect with his loyal (read: fanatical) band of ``True Believers.'' At the click of the mouse, the disciplesnumbering 12 (surprise! surprise!)will kill whoever, whenever, wherever. Or kidnap, for that matter, which is what they do to poor Gwen. But not before they arrange a little artificial insemination caper: after all, somebody's got to carry on the great work when W.D. is gone. Once Messiah Junior is born, the plan is to off Gwen and let the disciples groom the child for its high calling. Meanwhile, Will, desperate to retrieve his stolen wife, has trouble enlisting the help of the Beltway establishment. It's all cynical wheeling-dealing, you see, and honest (read: relatively) Will has earned himself a passel of enemies through the years. So (surprise! surprise!) he's left on his lonesome. Not to worry, though. Help is on hand from an author entirely undeterred by considerations of plausibility. Once again, Richardson demonstrates uncommon political savvy (Dark Horse, 1997); his Beltway stuff is both convincing and darkly funny. As for rest, if you liked Die Hard II, a film for which he provided the screenplay, you'll probably go along. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
