Political reporter Jack Macdonald is having a bad day. He wakes up with a terrible hangover, a hazy memory and an extra BlackBerry in the pocket of his wine-stained suit. He's doing better than his friend, political staffer Ed Sawatski, who is floating face down in the icy Rideau Canal. The same morning, Prime Minister Bruce Stevens tells his wife he has decided to retire from politics, which sets off a ruthless, no-holds-barred power struggle in the backrooms and bedrooms of Ottawa. Macdonald doesn't know it, but he has a great story on his hands, if he can stay alive long enough to tell it.

Ripping good read, fast paced with morally obtuse characters and some pretty racy scenes. Can't wait to read more of his work.

Fun read. Almost as entertaining as the plot itself is trying to figure out what real life Ottawa MPs served as the basis for the fictional characters.

Well worth reading, not just for the mystery component, but for the political intrigue in Ottawa. Without my giving away the plot, watch for how a senator is appointed!
