Credible narcissist?

Overall an excellent story, well paced and appealing characters. I struggled a bit with the narcissist villain, whose phraseology seemed strangely familiar. It was hard to believe that people slavishly followed the villain,, but maybe that’s because I am not American.

So was this book a crime thriller, or a political satire?

A great Lison

As his second book was very exciting from start to finish. Mr Deaver really sucks you in to the story. Well dramatized with lots of seat of your pants chapters
