The Right is the must-read novel of this election year from the bestselling author of Favorite Son and Patriots. Reviewers and readers rave about Steve Sohmer's novels: Richard Condon, author of Prizzi's Honor: 'A breakthrough book, the political thriller of the year'. The Washington Post: 'Fast-paced, graphic ... extremely good.' The Louisville Courier: 'Stylish, brutal, burning with honesty.' The New York Times: 'Timely, insightful ... touching.' The Los Angeles Times: 'A superior thriller!' Kirkus Indy calls The Right: 'Exceedingly well-paced ... readers able to buy into the ambiguous morality of executing a man ... (and more importantly, the political storm it could generate) will find much to relish. With character details always in development (ranging from skeletons in the closet to private epiphanies), readers captivated at the outset will find plenty of reasons to stay that way ... .' When young and unworldly FBI Agent Rachel Rosen is handed files on a ten year-old double-homicide, she has no clue she is stepping into a titanic struggle between a liberal-leaning White House and a militant Religious Right. What's at stake? The life of a man - perhaps a vicious killer, perhaps innocent - scheduled for lethal injection in 72 hours. And an end to the death penalty and abortion-on-demand in the United States. Before the clock runs out, an assignment which seemed mere clerical work will become a life-or-death struggle ... as some of the most powerful forces in America threaten to destroy her career, her life - and the foundations of our Constitution.
