SPOTLIGHT DARK MONEY

Once again Larry Thompson has delivered a suspenseful page-turning mystery. His novels always seem to have a socially significant moral underpinning. Dark Money is no different. In addition to the murder of a wealthy Texan and the wounding of the Texas Governor, the reader is presented with the social issues surrounding U. S. Supreme Court rulings regarding political campaign finance and their repercussions. Thompson weaves a fascinating tale of intrigue and courtroom drama involving his protagonist, wealthy pro bono attorney, Jack Bryant. The author’s legal background and expertise brings the court proceedings to life. The reader is advised to stay tuned until the very end because in the world of politics and in the courtroom, things are not always as they appear. He is a great story teller. Dark Money is well worth the read. I can’t wait for the next Jack Bryant adventure.

 

Larry Thompson has delivered yet another powerful novel, illuminating the darker side of campaign contributions — a subject about which all Americans should be better versed. I was hooked from the beginning, drawn into the edgy suspense and culminating with the true masterpiece of Dark Money, which plays out in the courtroom. The choice isn’t whether or not to select this book, but rather between reading it fast in order to reach the ‘big reveal’, or slowly in order to savor the strategic brilliance and smooth nuances

 

Finally, another novel by Larry Thompson! His 5th in a string of page-turners, Dark Money moves likes it is turbo-charged. Once again, Larry crafts a plot from current events. His characters spring to life and Jack Bryant feels like an old friend. I can’t wait for his next book.
