The Race by Richard North Patterson

A white war hero Republican candidate for President? Dating a black actress who mirrors Halle Berry? Rejects the politics and support of evangelicals? Votes for stem cell research?? His closest confidante? A former black Secretary of State who seems a lot like Colin Powell.

You know this is a book of pure fiction but an interesting one.

Corey Grace is the Republican war hero who decides to run for President. You won't mistake Grace for George W. Bush or Mitt Romney. He does have similar family issues like Rudy Giuliani. (He is divorced and estranged from his teenage daughter).

Very good page turner. Excellent ending as I did not see that coming.

This book is much better entertainment than a Republican Presidential debate or a Fred Thompson stump speech.
