I am in a bit of a political book mood lately, and I was attracted to Deceit as it is set in the federal parliament of Australia.
Written by a former politician, and using issues that are current in the Australian political environment, you do have to wonder how many of these kind of things do happen every day.
Corruption, lies, betrayal. There are very few characters that the reader can trust in this story. Shady dealings, backroom deals, blackmail. Gah, I had such a visceral reaction to this book, knowing that in part these things are going on without the punters knowing.
I adored Gordon O'Brien. Straight as an arrow amongst those who are only in things for themselves, I couldn't help but cheer him on as he was like a dog with a bone, searching out the truth.
Will he win out? Well, for that you are going to have to read for yourself.
This is the first book in The Democracy Series however it can be read as a standalone and there is no cliffhanger.
I look forward to seeing where this series takes us.
