If you like generic crime stories with some snappy dialogue, this story is probably for you. I found it really improbable and unlikely that the series of events could have unfolded so quickly. Really not the kind of book you want to spend a lot of time reading, fortunately it scans easily. The unscrupulous senator seemed to be a thinly disguised description of Pres tRump. Lots of planning to avoid the truth with diversions 4 the press. Just not my kind of book, no lasting literary merit: a beach read.
