Palace Council review Ô 103 “Carter twists plotlines like pretzels while wryly skewering America’s wealthy intellectual elite” PeopleJohn Grisham called Stephen L Carter’s first novel The Emperor of Ocean Park “beautifully written and cleverly plotted A rich complex family saga one deftly woven through a fine legal thriller” The Chicago Tribune hailed Carter’s next book New England White as “a whodunit with conscience” Now this best selling novelist returns with an electrifying. What a great summer read a political thriller chock full of conspiracy theories and shady dealings but told from the perspective of Harlem s upper crust in the 1950s 60s and 70s While I consider myself fairly well educated being white and a native Iowan did not provide me with the best insight into African American life during the mid 1900s The world Carter describes is fascinating and the characters are well developed and intricate So while he may be covering some old historical ground the lens through which it s viewed is completely fresh and probably long overdue at least in the political thriller sense Despite a few shortcomings the book does what good books are supposed to do it compels you to turn the page because you absolutely have to know what happens next Make Something rich complex family saga one deftly woven through a fine legal thriller” The Chicago Tribune hailed Carter’s next book New England White as “a whodunit with conscience” Now this best selling novelist The Bone Man of Benares A Lunatic Trip Through Love and the World returns with an electrifying.

Palace Council review Ô 103 Political thriller set in the turbulent era of Watergate and Vietnam giving us one of the most riveting and naked portraits of Nixon ever writtenIn the summer of 1952 twenty prominent men gather at a secret meeting on Martha’s Vineyard and devise a plot to manipulate the President of the United States Soon after the body of one of these men is found by Eddie Wesley Harlem’s rising literary star When Eddie’s younger sister mysteriously disappears Eddie and the woman. Oh critics how ye disagree Many found Palace Council overly long and complained that the thriller parts came and went at random It s also a bad sign in a genre that depends on flashbang finales if the ending is considered weak On a separate note Edward and Aurelia witness historical events than Forrest Gump
