He inhaled deeply, held his breath for several moments, then slowly tilted his head back and blew thick, pungent smoke toward the ceiling. He was in no rush as acutely aware of the value gained from projecting indifference in these situations. David Mitchell peered through the gloom at the figure in the leather chair, but could distinguish little except the indistinct outline of the man's body and the glow of a cigar tip as it moved.

This book has received quite mixed reviews. However,to my taste, I considered it to be quite compelling. I really hated to put it down. Basically it's a story about a Bond trader who seems headed towards ruin. His father, who he really didn't know and was a covert DIA agent left him a video tape of the Kennedy assassination which proved there had been a conspiracy. The current President, in cahoots with the Mafia boss, were working together to keep the truth hidden. Tremendous drama, thrills and excitement along the way.
In previous novels author Frey, thru has main characters, has taken on what might be called The Evil Empire. Perceived Racists, Government officials out for personal gain,crooked financial manipulators. This time he seems to combine it all with a plot reaching up to the U.S. Senate, Military Black Budgets and insider stock trading. Nevertheless, the book holds ones attention as the pages fly by.
Bought for a friend who greatly appreciated it.
This was my third Frey book, and if it had been my first I wouldn't have gone back to the well a second time. It had a convoluted sometimes boring plot that did not tie together well. Frey tried to combine a financial thriller and a political thriller, and neither focus worked for me. Characters were cardboard, twists and turns held very little surprise, and the ending was very predictable. I guess it was supposed to be a "everyone is not who they seem to be" type thriller, but if you have read a few thrillers, the story plays out by the numbers.
On the good side, the book is relatively short ( just over 300 pages in hardcover ) and the villains were people you would like to hate.
DON'T LET THIS BE YOUR FIRST FREY NOVEL. Try some of his other stuff first, and if you HAVE to complete the full FREY collection, I would STILL advise you to SKIP THIS ONE.
Anyway, happy reading.
I am a fan of Stephen Frey. His book 'Take Over' was fabulous. This one though seems to stumble around quite a bit.

First the story: It deals with an investment firm, the government, a huge airplane contract and a young IRS agent. This young IRS agent, Jesse, finds out that her admired boss, who was just killed, had some damning information on some illegal activities of a government contract and a political candidate. The boss knew that this was some explosive information he was uncovering so he set up a safeguard that if he was killed, he would have this information sent to someone that could figure out the entire web and uncover all the deceit. So who did he send it to? The FBI, the Police? Nope. He sent it to a 25 year old woman. He was killed for this information and he sent it to his employee, a friend, who is 25 years old to unravel it all. Huh? Well, the plot takes us to Jesse running for her life at times, having friends she is not quite sure she can trust (David, an investment banker who is a member of a firm that Jesse is interested in but he is a man that she may not be able to trust...and Todd who is a good friend of hers who has gambling problems and issues and a man that Jesse may not be able to trust as well) all the while trying to figure out who the bad guys are and what they are trying to acoomplish. Convuluted story.

The characters--nobody comes off real likeable. Even Jesse has some issues, some of which are brought up but not really explored The guys are even worse. You never really get to know either one of them real well and even worse, you don't really like either one of them.

The book has so many characters and it has such a weak plot that you as a reader end up just plodding along. Disappointing effort from an author that I very much enjoy.
Jesse Hayes is an IRS agent working out of the Baltimore field
office. She dreams of leaving her underpaid, overworked, and
unappreciated federal job by obtaining a position with Sagamore
Investment, a large money management corporation. When she begins to
interview for a position, her boss suddenly dies, leaving Jesse with a
file compiled on Eldridge Coleman, a candidate for the U.S. Senate, who
has some interesting ties with the military-industrial complex (Ike's
next to worst nightmare come true). Eldridge's opponent is the
incumbent Malcolm Walker. Though they disagree on several issues, the
widest gap between the candidates is over defense spending. Eldridge
fully supports every spending initiative sponsored by the Department of
Defense while Malcolm wants to reduce defense expenditures.
...... Jesse quickly realizes that the Sagamore group is involved with some
of the shady defense dealings that ties in with Coleman. It appears
that a conspiracy to rid the senate of a powerful anti DOD legislatures
and replace him with a pro DOD person is in the works. The deal
touches the senate, the navy, the private sector, and even the upcoming
election. There are many individuals who want Jesse stopped at any
cost, possibly even including the Sagamore exec that she finds herself
attracted to in spite of the risk.
..... THE INNER SANCTUM is a fast-paced, action packed political thriller
that takes the buying of national elections even beyond the scope of
the recent 1996 Congressional and Presidential races. Though reality
is stretched beyond the Lincoln Room and Jesse must be superwoman to
survive the conspirators, Stephen Frey's latest novel is a fun to read
palpitator especially for political conspiracy buffs.
