The latest election year blockbuster book is the political thriller The Committeeby best-selling author Terry E. Hill. It’s premier on bestseller lists, 5 star reviews and top ranking in new release book festival contests around the country is proof that America is finally ready for the first African American female president. The Committee is a beguiling tale that twirls Illuminati conspiracy, New Orleans voodoo, American politics and a subplot gay affair in a delicious twist of turbulence and turmoil.
With Come Sunday Morning, When Sunday Comes Again and The Last Sunday, Hill proved himself to be an adept story weaver. Enthralling his readers with a trilogy based inside a megachurch setting, his well-spun plots of scandal, suspense and seduction were delivered with acute precision. Skillfully whipping his readers into a page-turning frenzy, they rushed to keep abreast of characters bigger than the books that encased them. With the release of The Committee on Urban Renaissance, an imprint of Kensington Publishing Corp., the author ups the ante and moves into the world of politics.
In The Committee, readers learn that the secret society behind the country’s most prominent political figures is a mysterious New Orleans family of Creole women who have headed The Committee for over one hundred years. It is they who control the men mistaken to be the country’s leaders. The Committee has selected every US president since James Monroe and controls much of the country’s economy. When they make the decision that the United States is not only ready for a Black woman president, but also select her, the phrase, ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ takes on new and insidious meaning.
Camille Ernestine Hardaway is the first African American female mayor of Los Angeles and she has it all – stunning good looks, power, a seemingly devoted husband and influential allies. The Committee has decided that she will be the first Black female President of the United States and will stop at nothing to ensure their rising candidate reaches the White House. Author Terry E. Hill sublimely works hypnosis with the written word as he winds the reader deeper down a sinister black hole with each chapter. The Committee’s lethal combination of manipulation, intimidation, mysticism and murder make for the most intoxicating political thriller.
