Jim Mitchelle thought he finally got his life together after a few bumps in the road. However, he is caught in the middle of an assassination plot. Jim is projected into a vacant state assembly seat. Jim doesn't want the job but, he is the best candidate they have. Together with his allies, he has to help prevent a political takedown while ensuring he keeps his job and life in the end.
I thought the novel had an interesting premise. Jim Mitchell was an egotistical journalist who let his personal ambition cost him dearly. He becomes a politician to help serve others and not himself. Upon taking this new job, he struggles with maintaining a healthy work and life balance. I like seeing how Jim was trying to manage his own personal demons. However, I didn't find this novel to be very suspenseful as the plot and murder was resolved very quickly without any plot twist. Overall, I found it to be a cozy read about politics.

An assassin’s bullet sends Jim Mitchell running. When he’ll stop is anybody’s guess.
A tragedy propels Jim into a vacant state assembly seat.

Then Jim gets involved in a plan to thwart a major terror attack that could either make him a hero or get him killed.
Political intrigue and high drama accent this tale of what it costs to find one’s purpose, and what the rewards can be when you do.
