The Race by Richard North Patterson

read by William Hope

With startling topicality and telling echoes of the real-life drama playing itself out in the current US election campaign, The Race is the breathtaking account of the fight by Corey Grace - brilliant and charismatic Republican senator from Ohio - in his battle for Presidential nomination. Pitted against a racist, homosexual-loathing Christian fundamentalist, a ruthless media mogul and a diehard party man, the independently minded Grace tries to come to terms with the tragic mistakes in his past and the blossoming relationship with a beautiful movie-star Democrat, who just happens to be African American.

For an electric narrative, bristling with political dynamite, look no further.

Thought provoking, seamless entertainment, stunningly read by William Hope.
