"General Banks is reluctant to tell the FBI about the note, partly for self-serving political reasons, and partly because he doesn't want to damage the Secret Service's reputation based on something that might very well be a hoax. So he requests help from his friend, Speaker Mahoney, and Mahoney assigns his man DeMarco to determine if the Secret Service was really involved. Moving at a breakneck pace, and packed with plenty of humor and suspense, "The Inside Ring" is a must-read for fans of political thrillers."--Provided by publisher

Great book. An attempt to shoot the president is made, the president receives a shoulder wound,his friend dies, a secret service agent is killed. Who did this? Was the secret service involved? An eye opening look at inside the ring.

I found it dragged a lot, and the violence within was troublesome to me. I considered not even finishing it when I was half-way through, but there was enough in the plot to keep me going to the end. I am unsure whether or not I will read another by this author -- a part of me thinks it would be worth it to try a later effort in the hope his style will have grown.

Fast paced thriller, with a touch of timely humor thrown in, typical Lawson fashion and a great read.
