Summary
NPR Best Book of 2017A polished and gripping political debut that Michael Connelly calls "an edge of your seat thriller," Shining City is set in DC amid a harrowing Supreme Court nomination fight."Amazing. . . . Pulses with momentum. . . . A debut that will be remembered for years." —Michael ConnellyPeter Rena is a "fixer." He and his partner, Randi Brooks, earn their living making the problems of the powerful disappear. They get their biggest job yet when the White House hires them to vet the president's nominee for the Supreme Court. Judge Roland Madison is a legal giant, but he's a political maverick, with views that might make the already tricky confirmation process even more difficult. Rena and his team go full-bore to cover every inch of the judge's past, while the competing factions of Washington D.C. mobilize with frightening intensity: ambitious senators, garrulous journalists, and wily power players on both sides of the aisle.All of that becomes background when a string of seemingly random killings overlaps with Rena's investigation, with Judge Madison a possible target. Racing against the clock to keep his nominee safe, the President satisfied, and the political wolves at bay, Rena learns just how dangerous Washington's obsession with power—how to get it and how to keep it—can be.Written with razor-sharp political insight and heart-pounding action, Shining City is a hugely impressive debut that announces a major new talent
