Hachette Audio | June 5, 2012 | Audio Book (CD)

The 500: A Novel is rated 2 out of 5 by 1.
A gripping thriller debut, set deep in the heart of the world''s most powerful political arena

A year ago, fresh out of Harvard Law School, Mike Ford landed his dream job at the Davies Group, Washington''s most powerful consulting firm. Now, he''s staring down the barrel of a gun, pursued by two of the world''s most dangerous men. To get out, he''ll have to do all the things he thought he''d never do again: lie, cheat, steal-and this time, maybe even kill.

Mike grew up in a world of small-stakes con men, learning lessons at his father''s knee. His hard-won success in college and law school was his ticket out. As the Davies Group''s rising star, he rubs shoulders with "The 500," the elite men and women who really run Washington -- and the world. But peddling influence, he soon learns, is familiar work: even with a pedigree, a con is still a con.

Combining the best elements of political intrigue and heart-stopping action, THE 500 is an explosive debut, one that calls to mind classic thrillers like The Firm and Presumed Innocent. In Mike Ford, listeners will discover a new hero who learns that the higher the climb, the harder -- and deadlier -- the fall.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The 500 A quick easy read. Took a loooog time to get exciting, like 2/3's of the way thru the book. But then I did enjoy it even though I did know what was going to happen as that was in the prologue. I would find it hard to recommend to a friend unless they were looking for a mindless easy read. Not really impressed. Especially with the ending being an almost word for word repeat of the prologue..
