Are Snakes Necessary? by @brian_depalma & @susanelehman

By Pamelascott

When the beautiful young videographer offered to join his campaign, Senator Lee Rogers should've known better. But saying no would have taken a stronger man than Rogers, with his ailing wife and his robust libido. Enter Barton Brock, the senator's fixer. He's already gotten rid of one troublesome young woman - how hard could this new one turns out to be?

Pursued from Washington D.C. to the streets of Paris, 18-year-old Fanny Cours knows her reputation and budding career are on the line. But what she doesn't realize is that her life might be as well...


[Barton Brock had a bad day]

I've read a fee titles from the publisher and rate them highly. I know Brian De Palma from his movies so was looking forward to seeing how the book panned out. This is a fast paced book that I read fairly quickly. That doesn't mean it's simple. It's not, this is engaging and very enjoyable. I enjoyed the time I spent with it. The book focuses on a range of subjects including politics, sex, violence and lies. There's some subtle humour in the book as well. It's sort of cheesy at times but very entertaining.
