This week’s book review is of THE ELECTION (Howard), by first time author, Jerome Teel. Fast paced and highly addictive, this page turner is a step above the pack. If you enjoy legal thrillers, THE ELECTION is your ticket to a good time.

From the back cover:

They seek ultimate power.

Nothing can stand in their way.

Ed Burke has waited a lifetime to become president of the United States. He's not about to let his nemesis, Mac Foster, stop him now...especially when he's sold his soul for the Oval Office.

Claudia Duval has lived a rough life. And finally, things have turned around for her after meeting the wealthy Hudson Kinney. But is all what it seems?

When a prominent citizen is murdered in Jackson, Tennessee, attorney Jake Reed doesn't want to know the truth. He just wants to get his client off. But as he investigates, he uncovers a sinister scheme. A scheme that would undermine the very democracy of America...and the freedom of the entire world.

I enjoyed THE ELECTION, and so will you. I give it my highest recommendation. Be sure to watch for Jerome’s second novel, THE DEVINE APPOINTMENT, scheduled for release in June of 2007.

Sounds like a far reaching plot. Makes me curious how the author handles it and what twists he has thrown in.
