Spotlight: The Page by Gordon Osmond




New Political Thriller: The Page
Chula Vista, CA - From accomplished playwright and novelist Gordon Osmond comes a brand new political thriller chronicling the coming of age of a young man within the politics, power and policy-making world of Washington, D.C.
The Page deals with the effect of the policies of the Environmental Protection Agency on a small-town couple and their teenage son, who suddenly decides to leave his private boarding school to apply for a position as a Congressional page. The reasons for and consequences of his decision drive The Page to its shattering conclusion.
The recent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court relating to the activities of the Environmental Protection Agency makes The Page especially timely and a must read for anyone interested in the inner workings of the U.S. Congress.
Praise for the book –
“Osmond’s writing introduces unique traits that make him stand above the rest. He is a gifted storyteller with a polished style that not only entertains the reader but also educates…” – Grady Harp, Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer
Nick Wale from ‘Novel Ideas Ltd.states, “The new Osmond novel has the style, wit, and finesse of a man who has much to say — and the talent to say it,”
James F. Broderick, Ph.D., author and university professor says, “The knowing tone and confident dissection of both the physical and psychic landscape of Washington is thrilling… authoritative… trenchant social commentary… a mini-masterpiece of intrigue, deceit, and politics — a clash of conscience in the often unconscionable world of high-stakes deal making… true wit and √©lan…”
According to writer and reviewer John J. Staughton, “The Page hits on universal issues that we can all relate to, in one way or another, which is valuable in any novel. Furthermore, for an author to achieve this with concise, clean prose that conjures up provocative, unforgettable scenes with characters we actually care about… well, that’s just great writing.”
Kevin Peter who reviewed the book for Moterwriter.com said that, “Osmond is a linguist’s delight, a master wordsmith, and a grammar Nazi all rolled into one. The author’s ability to put a smile on your face and induce a LOL moment when you’re least expecting it makes The Page an absolute must read.”
