Thriller Political | Thriller Terrorism
An intelligent and propulsive international
political thriller in which political fixer Peter Rena is
hired by the president to investigate the bombing of an
American military base overseas
When a shadowy American diplomatic complex is attacked in
North Africa, the White House is besieged by accusations of
incompetence and wild conspiracy theories. Eager to learn
the truth, the president and his staff turn to Peter Rena
and his partner, Randi Brooks. The investigators dive
headfirst into the furtive world of foreign intelligence and
national security, hoping to do it quietly. That becomes
impossible, though, when it blows up into an all-out public
scandal: Congress opens hearings and a tireless national
security reporter publishes a bombshell exposÃ©.
Now, Rena and Brooks are caught in the middle. The White
House wants to prevent debilitating fallout for the
president, the military appears to be in shutdown mode, the
press is hungry for another big story, and rival politicians
are plotting their next move. Rena learns the hard way that
secrets in Washington come with a very high price.
With intelligence, style, and a breakneck pace, The Good
Lie explores the contours of secrets, lies, and the
dangers of a never-ending war.
