The jogger’s throat was cut, leaving a pool of blood on the pedestrian path. Molly Malone could tell by the neon yellow running shoe dangling off the end of the stretcher that the body belonged to her friend Natasha Jorgenson.
A junior congressional staffer, Natasha was on her way to meet with Molly to hand over important research on an international banking bill. Natasha was the third person who knew about the research to die. Molly fears she won’t be the last.
As she and her colleagues are targeted by break-ins, wiretaps, and harassment, Molly discovers that powerful players are working out a plan to change the course of history . . . and they will stop at nothing to make sure they succeed.
And Mollie Malone’s story continues. I have been waiting so long for this book. Poisoned Politics last August left us with quite a cliffhanger. This international banking bill has gotten more than one person killed and while things have settled down Senator Russell’s at mansion (Molly’s workplace) Molly’s is still right in the middle of the of the drama taking place in Washington and “Danny Dangerous” is not always available to save her. Danny’s friend and the Senator’s security guard does his best to protect her while Dan is off doing whatever it that he does. But Mollie can’t help herself, her niece was killed so for her it is personal. This time she even has her own security detail but will they be able to keep her safe?
Maggie Sefton has done it again. I was drawn right into Mollie’s story and was held tight until the final word. I am surprised my Kindle Fire wasn’t smokin’! Suspense, intrigue, mystery, this story was firing on all cylinders. Mollie gets a vital piece of information and the clues start to come together to answer questions that started in Deadly Politics, the first book in this series and continued in Poisoned Politics, book #2.
This is a fantastic series. Now with Bloody Politics coming out tomorrow all three are able to be read consecutively. This is what I recommend, I think it would give a real movie feel. It is written so well that is very easy to picture each and every moment. They characters are really interesting, both the good and bad “guys”.
The book releases at the perfect time too with the crazy elections we had this past week and the whole series shows the corruption that can take place in Washington. Thankfully without the dead bodies as far as we know.
