In five days, the President will announce a new Chief of Staff.

Three very beautiful, very powerful women have each decided that her husband will be the next man in the White House.

Five days. Three women. One golden opportunity to be married to the second most influential man in America.

And only one of them will succeed.

I thought the intrigue in Washington was all make believe…

I knew when I picked up this book that there would be steam. There was a bucketload of that. Every detail is written from the viewpoint of someone who lived it or at least very close to it. This book also showed the maneuverings in Washington and how cutthroat it can be.

The moment I started this book, I couldn’t put it down. There were twists and turns, plus a lot of backstabbing and shaky dealings that added to my enjoyment. I don’t want to live around any of these people, but reading about them is fascinating.

One man dies and it’s up for grabs as to who will fill his spot. I loved reading the deals and rumors/lies used to get what everyone wanted. I got invested in the characters right away and I’m glad I read this. I couldn’t put it down.

If you’re looking for something dealing with 1980s politics and full of intrigue, then this book is for you. Give it a try.
