Présentation de l'éditeur

ACCESS TO POWER

Three weeks before a crucial senatorial election, a man is gunned down execution-style in a D.C. office. Police are quick to call it a case of robbery gone bad, but Frank Miles suspects something far more sinister behind the murder of his business partner.

Washington's most feared image maker, Frank's ruthless media manipulation has earned him countless admirers...and just as many enemies. Now, for the first time in his life, Frank's met his match in a shadowy schemer as clever as himself--but far more lethal.

As the body count rises, Frank becomes the U.S. Attorney's chief suspect--and a cunning killer's next target. From the underground tunnels networking Capitol Hill to the dome high above, his race for the truth--and his life--will bring him face-to-face with power at its deadliest extremes--where winning isn't everything...it's the only thing.

With his debut novel, L.A. Times bestselling author Robert Ellis raises the stakes in a heart pounding thriller set in Washington that feels so inside and so twisted it reeks of the darkest truth.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 C-Span meets Hitchcock. 31 juillet 2001
Par Chris Mottola - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
What Grisham is to law, Ellis is to politics
As a political professional, I can tell you, it is hard to find a newscast or an article, much less a novel, that accurately portrays what it is like to be inside of a high-pressure campaign.
Robert Ellis' book does that and more.
It is page turning thriller that seems to be ripped from the most recent tawdry scandals of the Beltway.
Scummy candidates, immoral media types, souless aides...it's all here.
Almost as much fun as discovering the resolve is seeing if you can guess which real life politicians his characters are based on.
Mr. Ellis is an insider. And it shows.
Access to Power is the best plane, beach, weekend read you'll have this year.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Vacation Book! 9 août 2001
Par Kevin A. Feeley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Damn that Robert Ellis! I read Access to Power on the recommendation of a friend, and I couldn't put the book down until I finished it. Which is great, except that it kept me up until 4 o'clock on a Monday morning, which made me useless for work that day. Access to Power is the best thriller I've read since the heyday of Robert Ludlum. The novel shows a real sophistication about Washington politics, and it's a first-rate murder mystery besides. Ellis writes in short, compelling chapters that make the book really easy to read -- and almost impossible to stop reading! This is a great book for a vacation or a long trip. If you like mysteries, it will hook you right from the start, and you'll enjoy a great roller-coast ride as the plot winds along to the surprise ending. A great beach book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Hit Man Ever 22 août 2001
Par Jay Stanton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I really dug this book. As Frank Miles runs a senate campaign and investigates his best friend's murder, George Raymond haunts Washington DC trying to cover his tracks and multiple murders. But Raymond has a few hangups, as I guess most anyone who kills people for a living would. He has this thing for self-help tapes and listens to them in his car. George Raymond is an unbelievably great character and redefines bad guys for all time. I'll never forget this incredible person. While he scared the blank out of me, there's a hint of humor in the guy. At times I thought I could hear the author laughing in the background. Robert Ellis's Access to Power would make a great movie. I can't believe I found this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Knock Out - But you better lock your doors 22 août 2001
Par Niki - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I read the first chapter, put the book down, turned every light in the house on, made sure the doors were locked and bolted, ran back to my chair, and didn't get up until I was finished ...
Robert Ellis's "Access to Power" is the best mystery thriller I've read this year. I think I liked it so much because it stands out. Something new and different.
Frank Miles is a political consultant with a problem - his partner's been murdered and DC's finist can't figure it out. Frank investigates on his own. Then there's another murder and another. While all this is happening, Ellis unloads on Washington in a way that blew my mind.
The characters jump off the page. Frank Miles is cool and kept me going. George Raymond may be the most vicious bad guy I've ever met in a book. But Ellis's depiction of women really got to me as well. He obviously knows women and likes them.
"Access to Power" packs a heavy punch. The twists and turns are ingenious and thrilling. I can't wait for his next one.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good debut from a promising author.... 16 janvier 2013
Par MED - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Robert Ellis debuts with 'Access to Power' - political consultant Frank Miles is at the top of his game. He wages senate and house campaigns, he even worked on the President's campaign. His firm, along with his two partners, is a success.

Then his long time partner, Woody is murdered. Metro police immediately rule it a robbery gone bad. But Frank thinks differently and starts to follow the clues only he sees.

This first novel is a little thin on character development and the plot is one-dimensional. But Ellis shows promise. If this is a series debut and his fledgling writing improves, he could become a must read.
