"Splitting Washington", it was spellbinding to read from the very beginning to the end. Full of suspense, with a lot of political humor and background. I really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend this book.

Review by: Robert Kershaw on Nov. 9, 2011 :
“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.

Review by: James Lyon on Sep. 1, 2010 :
If ebooks had back covers, the blurbs for Splitting Washington would be:

"A fast-paced political thriller ripped from today's headlines!"

"From Air Force One to bus terminals in flyover country, Splitting Washington is authentic page-turning entertainment!"

"Nonstop excitement from a promising new author who takes us inside today's political culture!"

But ebooks don't have back covers, so I'll just say that Splitting Washington is a terrific political thriller that I highly recommend.
