Narrator John Pruden shines in this political thriller. The story centers on a Maryland Congressional election between incumbent Democrat Hugh McKenzie and Republican newcomer Nelson Aguilar, a Hispanic media mogul. With ripped-from-the-headlines subplots and cringe-worthy partisan tactics, the story features an inside look at the highs and lows of political campaigns including creative financial contributions, intervention from questionable characters and other countries, and the impact of the 24-hour news cycle. Pruden expertly shifts between a wide range of multidimensional characters with spot- on accents and perfectly paced transitions and dialogue. The story is part cautionary tale, part political intrigue but also includes laugh-out- loud moments and gasp-worthy scenes that are more fact than fiction. A timely, engaging listen.
