"Bill Harlow has written a remarkable novel about international intrigue and policy making at the highest levels of our government. If you can't work in the White House, this is the next best thing."
--Brent Scowcroft, former National Security Adviser
"Bill Harlow has captured the essence of almost every personality type the White House and Navy have to offer with the uncanny authenticity of a man who knows both institutions intimately. True Washington insiders will recognize every character in Circle William. And he put them to great use in a first rate tale of high seas adventure and high White House intrigue."
--Marlin Fitzwater, former White House Press Secretary
"This is a terrific and unusual book. It offers two things often missing in such novels...military experience and a sense of humor."
--Tom Ricks, author of "Making the Corps"
"Circle William is a page turner - a riveting tale of suspense, a realistic glimpse of political personalities managing crises and most of all it is a fun read."
--Sean O'Keefe, former Secretary of the Navy
"Harlow has the Navy right, the press right, the White House right. I love this book. It's a terrific read -- all done with great seriousness while capturing the humor in the personalities who reside in some of the places of power or semi-power."
--Bob Woodward, co-author of "All the President's Men," assistant managing editor of The Washington Post, and former Navy lieutenant
"Circle William is a winner. It is fast-paced, full of suspense and above all authentic. I couldn't put it down."
