In First Victim, Doug McKinnon writes in the up front style of his columns about Washington at the highest levels of government. The truth he reveals is sometimes brutal and lot's of folks are probably uncomfortable seeing it in print, but for those of us who would never imagine. First Victim would have been on Condor's reading list. One person found this helpful. FIRST VICTIM is one of those books that start out great and then get lost in the middle. I became involved in the plot from page 1, but by the middle of the book I found things just too pat.

Talk about First Victim


Pettalo
As the title foretells, the stunning premise of this book is that the President of the United States is a vicious wife beater ( confirmed for the reader on page 6 !). WE know but the other characters don't, so the real revelation of this Washington insider novel is how a secret about a political leader finds its way to a place on so many Washington agendas.

In the film Three Days of the Condor, Robert Redford's character reads current novels, for the CIA, to discover the truth they reveal. In First Victim, Doug McKinnon writes in the up front style of his columns about Washington at the highest levels of government. The truth he reveals is sometimes brutal and lot's of folks are probably uncomfortable seeing it in print, but for those of us who would never imagine ... it's fascinating. First Victim would have been on Condor's reading list.

Although the behind-the-scenes maneuvering of the Washington powerhouses are interesting (although vomit-inducing), the plot, characters and dialogue are pretty cardboard. The main characters act with repeated stupidity, and the villains are totally one-dimensional & lacking in an even-handed depth. If I had written this same fiction, it never would have gotten published, so you figure out why it's in print...

As someone who has worked in the Machiavellian world of Washington politics, I found First Victim to be a very real and compelling view of the passions and intrigue that drive those in the halls of power. From the vivid settings to the crackling dialouge, every page of First Victim bursts with clarity, honesty, and emotion. Aside from creating a story that is a heck of a page turner, Mackinnon has stripped naked the incestuous Washington culture of quid pro quo. From the front page of the Washington Post to the floor of the House, we all know that what we see is not what we get. Mackinnon tells all with a balanced sensibility, creating a realistic cast of characters from the acrid selfservers to those who cling to their ideals in the face of cynical onslaught. Mackinnon's is the first book I've read about behind the scenes Washington where at the end of every chapter (after catching my breath) I could lean back and say to myself, "God, did he get it right."

FIRST VICTIM is one of those books that start out great and then get lost in the middle. I became involved in the plot from page 1, but by the middle of the book I found things just too pat. Characters were one-sided; lots of background was referred to and never explained and, finally, the deus ex machina of the 'terrorist' plot was just too much. I was disappointed

I like it very much. Mr. Mckinnon has a writing style that get one's attention from the beginning.
