Hail to the Chief

Hail To The Chief
: John Leslie, Carey Winfrey

This fast paced political thriller takes the listener deep inside the workings of a campaign ..............and on to transition of office. It kept me spellbound waiting for the next catastrophe that Skeeter would need to spin to their favor. This book had shadows of recent political happenings.

The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. David Wood's voice matched well with the story.

Somewhat interesting

"Hail to the Chief" (2016) by John Leslie and Carey Winfrey is a somewhat interesting novel about machinations taking place in Washington, D.C. Political fixer Bruce "Skeeter" Jamison rides the coattails of the first female elected president of the United States. Unfortunately, she is incapacitated by a brain aneurysm ten days before the inauguration, so it becomes Skeeter’s job to prop up the vice-president-elect—a man with a secret in his past—so the VP can assume the presidency. The supporting characters are more interesting than the main character. Mildly recommended. Book given free in exchange for honest review.
