The day Nathan Jellicoe was murdered he had attained the age of 67 years and 51 days. 42 of those years had been spent in politics, the last 9 as President of Amity. Prior to that he had been Prime Minister for 6 years, and served an apprenticeship as Leader of the Opposition and MP.

It was a proud day for him. “POLITICS AND DESTINY IN AMITY”, an essay competition for high school students, for which he had been responsible, had been run and judged and the authors of the 100 best entries were seated before him in the chamber.

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book.

Oh, d...

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...

Samantha Speed: This story was fantastic. I give it a 4 because of the sexual situations. I thank you for not doing detail and hardly addressing the situations. I love Raven, I love Sophie, I love them all. Riker is my favorite though. It is very well written and I finished it in two=three days. Fantastic book.

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!
