Access to Power - Robert Ellis
Access to Power is a political thriller. This book is $2.99 for the kindle, but free for Amazon prime members. This book is one I could not put down. If you like political thrillers, this is a must read. Frank Miles is a political consultant. His current big project is the race for senator in Virginia. Frank's client has the money to fund a huge campaign, and with three weeks to go Frank is pushing hard. Then Frank's long-time partner is murdered, in what looks like a robbery. Before the bodies stop piling up Frank is running for his life, and the term "dirty politics" takes on a whole new meaning. In this story, the underhanded tricks that political consultants will stoop to is amazing, and the candidates being touted by the consultants are right down there in the gutter with them. There's probably more truth to that part of the book than fiction. This novel is enlightening and entertaining. Right up to the last page, this book never failed to hold my attention. Very highly recommended.
