The Intern - Dale Wiley

4 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
It's 1995. Things are going great for new Washington, DC intern Trent Norris. He's out on his own, he's found a fabulous woman to date, and if he doesn't love his internship, he doesn't hate it either. Life is nice.
But things can change in a moment in DC, and Trent finds himself the prime suspect in two murders and a slew of other crimes. Overnight he becomes the most wanted man in America.
Trent has to find a way -- any way -- out. He finds a way to hole up at The Watergate on a senator's dime and enlists a comely call girl as his unwitting ally. But with the media eating him alive, he knows he doesn't have long before they catch up with him. Can The Intern find his way out of this mess?
From tony clubs in Georgetown to Capitol Hill murders, The Intern has all the twists and turns of a classic DC thriller, with an added comic flair.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -

MY THOUGHTS -
The beginning of this kind of reminded me of the TV show The Office. I only watched a couple shows but it was hugely popular! Even though this was a mystery - it was a fun read. The author has a nice, easy to read writing style. It was fast paced and full of action.

Great character development! I loved the characters, actually. They made the book more fun to read and  they (Trent) made it seem real. He was kind of a goofy, smart, geeky, nerdy kind of guy. I could see this actually happening in "real life".

If you would like a fun, easy reading, quick mystery with fun relate-able characters - this one is for you! A great summer, by-the-pool read. I say this because I have a pool now! and most of my books will be read by it.

Thank you Partners in Crime for sending me this book for my honest review.

  1. Thanks for introducing us to this political thriller. I'll definitely be reading my copy by the pool as well. (Shared condo pool, but still a great place to read in the Summer!)
