It’s apparent early on that the Chinese have a mole at the top of the American government; it’s Kelly’s job to unmask the traitor. Topol’s mix of serviceable prose and workmanlike plotting doesn’t generate much suspense.

Synopsis

In typical Topol style, Washington Power Play spins a tale of international intrigue, deception, and corruption at the highest levels of power.
Kelly Cameron, a young FBI agent, has just thwarted a terrorist attack on the Walter Reed hospital in Washington, and is now put in charge of a task force to find a mole in the U.S. Government. She soon finds evidence of a plot initiated by the Chinese government supporting General Cartwright to be elected as the U.S. President.


Kelly's efforts to thwart this plan are hindered by Xiang Shen, a Chinese diplomat who was once her lover, and Andrew Martin, a powerful Washington lawyer, who has strong ties to the Chinese. Kelly faces danger with repeated attacks on her life and her daughter's kidnapping. At stake in the Washington Power Play is the global balance of power.
