Publisher's Summary

How far will a candidate go to become president? Erica Sparks - America's top-rated cable-news host - is about to find out.
Mike Ortiz is a dynamic war hero favored to win the White House. Standing by his side is his glamorous and adoring wife, Celeste. But something about this seemingly perfect couple troubles Erica. Is Celeste really who she seems? And most importantly, what really happened in that squalid Al-Qaeda prison where Mike Ortiz spent nine months?
But more than the nation's future is at stake. Erica's relentless search for the truth puts the life of her preteen daughter Jenny in danger, even as Erica's own dark past threatens to overtake her.
In her latest Newsmakers thriller, New York Times best-selling author and Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl weaves a taut and chilling story. The Candidate is packed with political intrigue and media manipulation as the lust for power turns deadly

Excellent political thriller

Harvard Law grad Lis Wiehl has become a darned good author of suspense thrillers. Top reporter Erica Sparks is covering the Democratic Party presidential campaign in this book. Just read the publisher's summary and then listen to this outstanding novel. Devon O'Day's narration is pitch perfect. This is only my second Lis Wiehl novel, but I will listen to others. Recommended! 4.5 stars.

Good Book

I really enjoyed the book.The only thing I would change, is, I feel that two people should have narrated the book. Sometimes it was a little confusing on what character was speaking with just one person narrating.
