Newly elected US President Stephen Baker is flying high after signing a popular bill giving new rights to victims of domestic violence. But in Vic Forbes he has a ruthless enemy who is in possession of a crucial piece of knowledge that could destroy his career.

Easy to listen political satire

If you like conspiracy theories in US politics, this is for you. Written by a journalist, this is an easy listen, informed by his knowledge of how politics works. Interesting is his incorporation of the internet as a major factor particularly as Facebook revolutions were starting in the Middle East as I listened. His lead characters were not particularly engaging -- a rather coy male view of independent but selectively dependent woman -- and of course there is the strong supportive male with a fine feminine streak. It was well read with the sense of urgency that the text required -- but ultimately both the reading and the plot resulted -- whether intentional or unintentional, I don't know -- in it being a political satire.
