Tom Rosenstiel - Shining City
Rosenstiel, co-author of the classic The Elements of Journalism, founded the Project for Excellence in Journalism which became part of the Pew Research Center in 2006; he is currently executive director of the American Press Institute. Deeply familiar with how the Washington political scene works, he’s now put that expertise into a fast-paced thriller. His debut novel follows Peter Rena and his lively partner. They’re a pair of fixers with a proven track record, and their latest job involves vetting a Supreme Court nominee for the White House. The Judge is a formidable but polarizing figure, and as groups mobilize for and against, a series of seemingly unrelated killings complicates Rena’s task.
