Richard Bowker (Author). Narrator James O'Connor, a young Republican Senator in heavily Democratic Massachusetts, has a month to go in his reelection campaign when he finds the body of ex-mistress Amanda in her Back Bay Boston apartment. The beginning of this book put me off. I generally do not care for novels written in the first person, and the first chapters were tedious, another overworked story of the dead mistress whose murder threatens to ruin her high-placed lover.

Note to local readers: even though there is snow on the cover, no shoveling takes place in the novel, and only a small amount of dangerous driving.

Note to local readers: even though there is snow on the cover, no shoveling takes place in the novel, and only a small amount of dangerous driving. This is the nice kind of snow, not the kind of never-ending, soul-destroying snow that is falling as I type these words.

I am an avid reader and don't stop before I finish a book 99 out of 100 times. Thus I stick with what I start reading. In the case of Senator I seriously thought several times of stopping and moving on to another book. I did end up sticking with it to the end. The book drags and you want to push the author along. The largest complaint I have is that all the primary characters are seriously flawed. As a reader there is no one to root for. I guess it is typical of our political climate, throw all the bums out. There is one exception, the Senator's teenage daughter, a secondary character who is the only adult in the room. She is a secondary character perhaps in the author's mind has not grown up enough to develop the flaws prevalent in all the adult characters. Turns out to be a boring book. I'll try not to give the plot away but the Senator appears to make a redeeming decision at the end of the book only to back down at the very end. The book leaves the impression that absolutely nothing was accomplished or resolved.

I bought this book because I'm a political junkie. I had no expectations beyond this being something to read over the course of a few days.

As it turned out, however, I absolutely loved it.

The author does a great job taking readers into the senator's re-election campaign, into the senator's own mindset as he works through a host of non-political problems, and into the lives of people who choose to make politics their life's work.

This was also fun to read because it was set in the 1990s. What must've been the most high-tech and advanced campaign possible back then seems pretty primitive compared to what we see today -- with 24-hour cable news everywhere, smartphones, the Internet, etc.

If you're interested in politics -- and like a good murder mystery with well-developed characters -- this book is a can't miss!

The beginning of this book put me off. I generally do not care for novels written in the first person, and the first chapters were tedious, another overworked story of the dead mistress whose murder threatens to ruin her high-placed lover. However, once all of the players were identified, I found myself relating to the protagonists and many supporting characters on the same kind of personal level as when I first read Presumed Innocent so many years ago.Presumed Innocent Bowker creates the flawed hero of the classics, a man driven on the one hand by ambition and on the other,by a sense of honor. Even at the end, the Senator possessed strengths and weaknesses that are not entirely resolved. In other words, he is human. This is not just a fine tuned murder mystery, it is a journey into the very complex issues of guilt and innocence-good and evil. For nearly a quarter century, I was a prosecutor of serious felonies, a position not without personal as well as professional challenges. It was not uncommon for me to sometimes relate to the defendant sitting one chair away at counsel table on a very human level. That did not change the nature of my mission--I was considered a tough prosecutor-- but it made me reflect upon the difference between the concept of legal guilt and that of moral evil. This is not a story in which the murderer is arrested, tried and convicted, but its resolution is gratifying. In the past 18 months I have downloaded more than 415 books on my Kindle, and read all but a very few.This is one of the better ones, perhaps when it comes to a political mystery, the very best.

A little dated but not a bad read. There is an air of cynicism and world weariness tempered with a huge dose of shanty Irish Catholic angst in the title character. Oh yeah there's a murder thrown in for good measure during a heated reelection campaign.

Great political drama. Story moves along easily with extremely well developed characters and a story line that keeps the pages turning. Definitely will be looking forward to reading more from this author. Once you start reading this book you will find it difficult to put down...enjoy!

This is a book that keeps you turning pages long after normal lights out. Plenty of false leads to keep you guessing. The teasers look like the standard is being maintained.

This book would have interested me more had I not just gone through an election and all of the garbage that goes along with it. I felt that as I read it, it could have been a biography since it described all of the tricks and trades of the political arena. All in all I am glad that I read it, just not one of my favorites.
Fantastic read could't stop reading it. The ending (1st time for me) was unexpected. Actually a perfect ending for a change. I woul recommend this book to anyone who enjoys political mysteries.
