A young Congressman stumbles on the powerful political underworld of 1950's D.C. in this 'potent thriller' (David Baldacci) and New York Times bestseller from CNN correspondent Jake Tapper.

Charlie Marder is an unlikely Congressman. Thrust into office by his family ties after his predecessor died mysteriously, Charlie is struggling to navigate the dangerous waters of 1950s Washington, DC, alongside his young wife Margaret, a zoologist with ambitions of her own. Amid the swirl of glamorous and powerful political leaders and deal makers, a mysterious fatal car accident thrusts Charlie and Margaret into an underworld of backroom deals, secret societies, and a plot that could change the course of history. When Charlie discovers a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of governance, he has to fight not only for his principles and his newfound political career...but for his life.

I really looked forward to this book. It’s good and not horrible. I felt that it was constantly building to something but never got there. I was thinking about 3 stars but thought that was because it was Jake Tapper and I like him as a journalist... this is a 2 star novel. The descriptive prose got to be annoying and I almost made them into a drinking game. (Read the opening of Washington Posts review after you read a bit of this book and you get his joke.) If there is a sequel I will not be following Charlie’s journey.

This book was authentic to the era even when the authenticity was painful--no excuses, no "maybe this isn't a good idea." I am so glad Jake Trapper wrote this way. The intrigue was believable and scary as hell. I think Jake's book will become a must read if you want to explain to Millenials how researching was done before the internet. My only complaint was that Jake was narrating the book and he isn't a narrator. He only speaks in one "voice," which distracts from the excellent story.
