Former cop Duane Rondo has fallen into a job near Washington, D.C., using a program called ISPI to gather information—even the smallest details—on individuals who seem suspicious or are running for a position in the government. That’s how he discovers the perfectly clear record of Sybille Haskin, a nominee for secretary of Homeland Security, and comes to the conclusion that someone is tampering with top-secret, supposedly secure information in order to make sure that Haskin lands the governmental position. Rondo will stop at nothing to get the information he wants, from giving Haskin a ticket that she doesn’t deserve in order to track it through ISPI, to taking her to bed. What follows is a loosely plotted tumble down a rabbit hole of suspicion within the organization, interchangeable government officials and extraneous characters, a hunt for Rondo by amateur terrorists, spying, techno-speak, unanticipated humor and a galvanizing chase scene that ends in another country …."

"A desperate villager's quest to become Zimbabwe's newest executioner kicks off this intriguing debut horror novel involving man-eating plants, organ harvesting and other uncanny oddities...
