A racy, smart and fast read about the the way politics really happens in modern America. The story of a Vice President who decides to make his move and finish off his President's ailing Administration and how he deftly accomplishes that goal.

I was bored with this book almost immediately. The plot is implausible. The characters are completely predictable and not interesting. They are stereotypes of people in the political sphere. I was very disappointed.

If u r looking for 3 dimensional characters, look elsewhere. However, as most wise-asses are apt to be, the author has woven some profound truths around fun, biting satire. Great for beach reading
