REVIEW for Capitol Games

A big thank you goes out to the people at Hachette Books for sending me a copy of this book!

TITLE:                   The Capitol Game

AUTHOR:              Brian Haig

GENRE:                 YA

RATING:               4 Stars

The Capitol Game is another wonderful read from Brian Haig.

Although, for the most part, I have disconnected from thrillers, mainly because they are all the same, in my opinion, Haig manages to stand out from the crowd.

Firstly, he has a wonderful way of creating characters that you just love to hate - and in Capitol Game, he mixes in the world of high finance/corporate who have no problem killing or doing whatever needs to be done in order to make more and more $$ and to get more and more power - I loved it.

The writing is always breakneck speed and the pacing is perfect. The intrigue is always there and Haig has managed to incorporate a bunch of surprises in the plotline - making it difficult to figure out who are the good guys and just who will end up with the money and the power in the end.

I loved, loved this story. The book did not feel long enough to me.
