Publisher's Summary

In Duplicity, the newest thriller from former speaker of the House and best-selling author Newt Gingrich, such an invisible hand overseeing havoc worldwide plays a major role. Gingrich has teamed with former Washington Post reporter and best-selling author Pete Earley to create a highly plausible mix of domestic and global action in this ripped-from-the-headlines thriller.

And, of course, it's set during an American presidential election.

When President Sally Allworth decides to reestablish America's Mogadishu embassy in Somalia weeks before Election Day, her challenger says she is playing politics with American lives. That turns out to be true when the embassy is attacked and hostages are taken. Embassy station chief Gunter Conner and marine captain Brooke Grant end up the unlikely survivors of this Benghazi-style attack. Suddenly they are the only hope for saving their captured colleagues.

The firestorm of drama is compelling, set off by the intersection of Washington power and politics, a fragile third-world Islamic country, and Somali Americans here at home.

Only Newt Gingrich's unique, in-depth knowledge of the political realities of friend and foe could weave such a spellbinding tale of events and personalities, one that could actually happen...if America's leaders aren't wary of a world full of duplicity.

    I have always enjoyed a good political thriller or detective novel, now in my fifties, I find that I have even less time to spend reading.

    Great story, if a little far fetched at times. Looking forward to the Falcon getting his comeuppance sometime soon...

    "Hard to put down"

    This book was harder to put down than a Michael Crichton novel. I thought at first that a political novel might be a little sleepy and boring but not this one. There was great action from the first chapter and stayed that way through the entire book. Also this isn't a book that tries to sell Republican ideas but seemed to focus on a more serious problem that our country is facing. This is a must read for every American regardless of your political stance.

    "Interesting!"

    Very interesting. It makes you wonder about the events in our lives and government. I learned long ago not to always believe what we are told.

    "Wow!!"

    This was my first Newt Gingrich book. I will soon be enjoying more of his books.
    I was intrigued when I saw Newt pitching is book on one of the news programs.
    When I read the quote by Nelson DeMille on the front cover, that was The last little bit of encouragement I needed to make the purchase. I'm very glad I did.
    The timeliness of the plot in this book is spot on.

    Thank you Newt, it's a great read!!!

    "Good"

    I thought the main character, the woman, a bit too headstrong at inappropriate times. Mist of the Tim I liked her, but sometimes she really grated on me.
    The story was entertaining and kept me interested. If a sequel was written I would get it.

    "Very interesting"

    it's not what we expected it was very interesting and enjoyable. you can compare the incompetent at the presidential character in the book 2 Hillary Clinton and her and confidence as a senator Secretary of State first lady. nothing but sneaky conniving and disregarding the country for her own personal gain the power

    "My Personal Favorite To-Date from Speaker Gingrich"
    What made the experience of listening to Duplicity the most enjoyable?

    The feeling of authenticity is so hard to achieve in any work of fiction, and you will experience this realism in Speaker Gingrich and Pete Earley’s new book Duplicity. The characters and the events are contemporary, especially given that 2016 is an important Presidential Election year. The book highlights the pressures all are under who hold a political or military office; to serve your country yet be true to their personal values.


    What about Robert Fass’s performance did you like?

    Robert Fass’s rendition communicated a steady, non-judgmental account of events, combined with a measured emotional emphasis when necessary. And, interestingly enough, I found myself not liking the female heroin, Brook, very much… too opinionated I thought, hurts women in influential positions, then laughed at myself, “it’s just a character in a book!” The voice of the story is so important for the author.

    "Spellbinding plot with wonderful character develop"

    Twists and turns through what could easily be today's headlines. I was caught up within the story. A little like a Joel Rosenberg piece. wonderful writing without vulgarity for the sake of vulgarity.
