Working with wordsmith Mary-Rose Hayes, Sen. Barbara Boxer has penned - literally - a suspense novel about the inner workings of Washington politics.
For mindcandy I usually go in for technothrillers in the vein of Clive Cussler, John Nance, and Dale Brown and Tom Clancy back when they were readable.
This one should - ok, could - be interesting. It would be truly fascinating, though, to compare the handwritten manuscript with the finished typeset work. Not that it'll be possible.
Might even be more interesting to find out whether the galleys were corrected by Sen Boxer or Ms. Hayes.
