The Big Lie
by James Grippando
read by Jonathan Davis 11h 22m
rating – A / legal thriller
I’d read a couple of Grippando’s prior works and apparently hadn’t taken to them because I read one, gave it an A and then read another which I gave a B and never read another one until now. The two I read were. Most Dangerous Place and A Death in Live Oak.
But The Big Lie caught my eye before it was released because there’s a caricature of Trump in there. The whole book is nowhere near that great but the Trump character is hilarious. The plot revolves a fictional election in which the incumbent (the Trump wanna-be) only wins in the electoral college – he loses the popular vote . However, one of the delegates is going to switch her vote and the “Trump” supporters really do NOT want her to for a variety of reasons. There are a lot of political angles but there’s are legal issues as well. (This is a legal thriller after all.)
