From the back cover: The greatest nightmare for the free world today would be a master terrorist hiding somewhere, controlling and coordinating radical Islamic groups at the highest level around the globe.
In DUPLICITY, the newest thriller from former Speaker of the House and bestselling author Newt Gingrich, such an invisible hand overseeing havoc worldwide plays a major role. Gingrich has teamed with former Washington Post reporter and bestselling author Pete Earley to create a highly plausible mix of domestic and global action in this ripped-from-the-headlines thriller.
And of course, it’s set during an American presidential election.
When President Sally Allworth decides to reestablish America’s Mogadishu embassy in Somalia weeks before Election Day, her challenger says she is playing politics with American lives. That turns out to be true when the embassy is attacked and hostages are taken. Embassy station chief Gunter Conner and Marine captain Brooke Grant end up the unlikely survivors of this Benghazi-style attack. Suddenly, they are the only hope for saving their captured colleagues.
The firestorm of drama is compelling, set off by the intersection of Washington power and politics, a fragile third-world Islamic country, and Somali Americans here at home.
Only Newt Gingrich’s unique in-depth knowledge of the political realities of friend and foe could weave such a spellbinding tale of events and personalities, one that could actually happen . . . if America’s leaders aren’t wary of a world full of DUPLICITY.
If anyone is going to be able to talk about insider political deals it is going to be former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. With Duplicity he links up with Pete Earley and prove this to be true. Mr. Gingrich takes us behind the doors of Washington power as our first woman President is running for reelection. It is not going to be easy. President Allworth is still trying to run the government at the same time she is out campaigning. Mr. Gingrich has given us a behind the scenes Washington drama that is also a suspense thriller. Once the action gets going Mr. Gingrich revs up the thriller quotient considerably which will have you reading and flipping pages as fast as you can. Don’t start “Duplicity” late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down or stop thinking about it. I am sure you will enjoy reading this book.
