The windy city (albeit unnamed) is the setting for David Ellis's
second courtroom/ political thriller. In this follow-up to his very
successful LINE OF VISION (2001), Ellis takes us through the
shadowy hallways of a gubernatorial election, mired in unexpected
and iconoclastic revelations about one of the candidates and his
closest political ally.
As he did in his first book, Ellis gives his narrator a mesmerizing
voice, one the reader is prepared to take at face value. We want to
trust him. We want to believe him and to believe in him. He appears
to be such a nice, honest and humble guy.
