The Golden Hour

Deceptions. Readers who enjoy intelligent political thrillers are those most likely to enjoy Todd Moss’ debut novel titled, The Golden Hour. Protagonist Judd Ryker gets to prove his academic theory of crisis intervention when he is appointed as the State Department’s head of a crisis reaction unit. The theory is that during the first hundred hours, a crisis can be turned around. When a coup happens in Mali, Ryker leads the interagency task force to deal with it. Caught up in turf battles, Ryker races to Mali trying to beat the clock and resolve the crisis. The plot moves quickly, the situation is believable and the perspective on politics and infighting realistic. I was entertained from beginning to end and look forward to reading more from Moss, who had worked at the State Department and is now employed at a Washington think tank.
