Fired from his high-profile gig with a national news channel, investigative reporter Jack Sharpe takes a lead from a grad student named Tori Justice, who swears she's observed an impossible result in a local election. Sharpe learns that someone indeed has hacked the election and that that person is determined to turn American politics upside down—unless Sharpe's reporting can stop them.
Mr. Pepper has a greater faith in both the American people and in America’s systems to do the right thing to make sure that justice, insofar as it can be dealt given the realities of the process, is served. The Voter File is a wonderfully non-partisan look at the way things are supposed to work, regardless of criminal interference. Most of all, it’s an engaging page-turner that will both satisfy series fans as well as make new fans out of readers, like myself, who are just now discovering these terrific books.
... intrigue-filled ... The reader is privy to the action of the conspirators ... Mr. Pepper, who has quickly established himself as one of the best political-thriller writers on the scene, keeps surprising us to the final page.
... an overlong but engaging, ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that throws off its share of sparks. And a little humor ... What’s scary, if not surprising, is the suggestion that the president had a good point about monopolies.
