Review: Advise and Consent (Advise and Consent #1)

User Review  - Bob Almond - Goodreads

Outstanding political novel that was the start of series of novels picking up where the last left off and in one case splitting depending on the identity of the victim. All in all a great read with good character development but twists and turns that kept you turning the pages. Read full review

User Review  - Bill - Goodreads

A slightly more genteel (Ie, 1950's) version of "House of Cards". Will remind older readers how unsettling the Cold War once was. Read full review
