Mimi Johnson's GATHERING STRING is an exceptionally well plotted and masterfully constructed story of political and journalistic intrigue. With cinematic prose and an insider's knowledge of journalism, Johnson paints a extraordinarily detailed and realistic picture of the tensions and conflicts inherent in relationships between those who seek to discover the truth and those who would keep it hidden. However, there are no angels or demons in Johnson's story. Those who would reveal the truth are not always honorably motivated, and those who seek to suppress it are not always sinister.

As the tale gathers momentum to its satisfying conclusion, readers may squirm a bit as they consider how they might respond to the ethical and moral dilemmas faced by Johnson's carefully crafted characters. Readers who allow themselves to wrestle with these questions may find that their understanding of news gatherers and news makers has deepened.
