Corey Grace, a handsome and charismatic Republican senator from Ohio, is locked in a fierce presidential primary battle with the favorite of the party establishment and an influential Christian leader. A decorated Gulf War Air Force pilot known for speaking his mind, Grace's reputation for voting his own conscience rather than the party line - together with his growing romance with an African-American movie star - has earned him a reputation as a maverick and an iconoclast.

But Grace is still haunted by a tragic mistake buried deep in his past, and his integrity will be put to the test in this most brutal of political contests, in which nothing in his past or present life is off-limits. Depicting contemporary power politics at its most ruthless, The Race takes on the most incendiary issues in America's culture wars: racism, religious fundamentalism, gay rights, and the rise of media monopolies with their own political and economic agendas.

As the pressure of the race intensifies, culminating in a heated showdown at a deadlocked party convention in New York City, Grace must come to terms with his presidential ambitions and decide just how much he's willing to sacrifice in order to achieve them.

    " Interesting book but too much at this time about the national election. It was a little tedious and predictable. "

    " Well, not sure my review is fair since I listened to this book on tape. Probably would have got another star since this book, written before this year's presidential race, is more "preminiscent" (if that is a word) than anyone could have guessed. Being on the inside of politics, I can say this was a worthwhile "listen." My own commentary is there are bad guys, but most of the time especially these days, its hard to be all bad and in the public eye 24-7. "
