Cut and Thrust by Stuart Woods
This is the first book that I have read by this author. It is part of a series, but I think this book is able to stand on it's own, without having read the rest of them although perhaps people who have read the whole series might get more out of the story than I did. In this book, Stone Barrington is a lawyer who is friends with the president and is very much a part of the political scene. He and his cohorts finagle things behind the scenes in order to get their favored candidate nominated for their political party to run for president. There are some people who have threats against their lives and some police and other people trying to stop those from taking place. The whole book is a bit gossipy and does not have a lot of substance to it. I am not sure what the title has to do with the book. The book is an easy read though.
