“Splitting Washington” is a delight to read, a real page turner. It is a prescient, engaging, ribald, and suspenseful tale about an American Presidential election campaign involving sex scandals and a viable third party candidate.
As one reviewer notes, the book is "A fast-paced political thriller ripped from today's headlines!" and it brings to my mind 2012 candidates Herman Cain, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Barack Obama as well as Clinton, Bush I, and Perot in 1992.
The book displays an understanding of the nuances of modern election campaigns, the role of the press, and the diverse American electorate.
It also reminds me of Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400), reading like a 21st century version of “The Canterbury Tales.” I highly recommend this political thriller.
