Accountability. Brian Haig’s latest novel, The Capitol Game, tells a story of financial shenanigans that kept me engaged for all four hundred pages, despite some distracting ways in which Haig doesn’t understand business. What he does well is keep the plot moving, as his protagonist, Jack Wiley, lives true to his name as he carefully skirts the boundaries of illegal activity. Greed leads certain characters to fall into Wiley’s traps and the whole idea of accountability for behavior becomes a theme of the novel. Any reader looking for an action thriller will find excitement in the world of government contracting and private equity that Haig presents here.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
