This suspense novel posits a domestic terror group calling itself Genesis that has been wreaking havoc on the country in small increments. Now it ups the ante by an attack in the U.S. Capitol building during President Jim Allaire’s second State of the Union Address. A lethal virus spray is released in The Chamber of the House of Representatives which, for this event, is host to 700 of most of the power brokers in the country.

This book is definitely a “thriller” and I enjoyed the author’s writing when he wasn’t jumping the shark. Based on the “good” aspects of this book, I would definitely try another when in the mood for this genre.

Claudette What does Jumping the Shark mean?


Jill "Jumping the shark" is a phrase meaning that someone has gone over the top in believability. The origin of this phrase comes from a Happy Days episode where the Fonz jumped a shark on waterskis. This was labeled the lowest point of the show.
