New Orleans, July 2016: It's hot and sticky, and JD Callahan is fighting the campaign of his life. His candidate, the sitting vice president, is neck and neck with an anti-immigrant right-wing populist as the Republicans head into their first brokered convention in decades. Callahan, a New Orleans native without much affection for his hometown, is frantically trying to coordinate the convention and round up delegates when his estranged brother shows up, asks for an inconvenient favor, and threatens to reveal embarrassing family secrets if JD says no. Soon after, a series of bombs sets off a mass panic and tilts the convention toward the vice president's law-and-order opponent.
As JD scrambles to contain the damage, he finds himself contending with a sexy, gun-toting local gossip columnist, an FBI agent convinced that JD is cynical enough to set the bombs himself, and a host of family secrets.
The Innocent Have Nothing to Fear is a hilarious, sharply entertaining whodunit and a knowing satire of our political culture - the perfect summer listen for everyone who says he's sick to death of the 2016 campaign but can't stop reading and listening about it.

A tangled web of political politics.
The tale takes place during a political convention in Louisiana. The characters are colourful and filled with southern charm and views of life. Political hacks, campaign workers, party leaders, reporters, policemen, bombers and supporters' are all characters covered in the story. The language is pure southern drawl and stories. I loved the book and it captures the 2016 Presidential Campaign with fictional characters.
