Reviewed by Ron Charles on Jun 04 2018

The larger problem, though, is how cramped the novel's scope remains. There's no thrum of national panic, no sense of the wide world outside this very literal narrative.

This novel is indeed missing several things, including a believable plot and even the remotest sense of narrative tension. The president, however, is not one of them.

...the eventual revelation of the villain, which is satisfying and surprising, really does feel like the outcome of a conversation between one writer with an unusual skill at thriller plotting and another with an exceptional grasp of global politics. The literary running mates have earned a second term.
