The Pinebox Vendetta by Jeff BondThis story of two families that have dominated the political landscape of America since the Revolutionary War times just isn t for me I m not usually into political books but characters that I can care for can make such a book good for me Yet I could not connect with any of the characters in this book The two characters that I would most likely connect with turned me off with their whining blaming and unwise decisions This may be better for folks who can grab onto the big picture of the story but I surely didn t identify with ither of the powerful wealthy get what you want at all costs political families Samantha Lessing is the main character and the best thing she could ver do for her daughter is to take her daughter and leave her horrible marriage Instead she uses the xcuse of her daughter to stay with a man who is bad for both of them This is the first book in a series about the Pruitt Gallagher centuries old war and they don t care who they take down with them Thank you to Jeff Bond Books and NetGalley for this ARC I absolutely LOVED The Winner Maker Sadly Bond s second book was not for me but when I saw that The Pinebox "Vendetta Was A Political "was a political I thought this would be a return to the writing style that I found so intriguing in the first book I was wrong I struggled to finish the book and once finished I wished that I had not The Pinebox Vendetta centers around two incredibly power political families in the US Wealthy Corrupt into very facet of business ntertainment politics across the continent they control nearly verything well no they do control verything The outlier in the story is Sam the once girlfriend of a family member and Yale graduate The story unfolds at a Yale reunion where there is rape
sexual abuse murderabuse murder corruption cover up and that s just part of the story Sadly as I was reading this I had running scenarios in my head of all of the factual politicians who had committed this very same offenses and the I read the sickened I became Fiction Reality Truth as Fiction the lines were so blurred and making the horror of it all seem so normal made me sick The ONLY reason I finished the book was because I kept waiting for accountability Someone had to be the good guy Surely Sam would turn them in tell the story step up to the plate But no No one ver does and as we know ven if she had she would have tarred and feathered and her life would have been ruined By The Families I Had A Visceral Reaction To The the families I had a visceral reaction to the obviously Maybe that is a good thing But I hate that it xists and I hate that it is far truth than fiction I was invited to read an ARC of this American political drama by the author who had liked my review of one of his other books Blackuest 40 but with the warning that it was a very different genre It s the beginning of a series about two wealthy dynasties who have battled for political power for hundreds of years focussing on a black sheep from ach family who happened to be at Yale University together Sam Lessing a struggling documentary New York filmmaker in a failing marriage travels to her twenty year college reunion with her teenage daughter hoping to reconnect with old friends and interview people about the legendary Pinebox Vendetta a centuries old feud between the Conservative Pruitts and the Liberal Gallaghers Rock Pruitt is a loathsome misogynist bully remind you of anyone whose political career was derailed by the death of his roommate Derek in his first year Jamie Gallagher an ideologically driven dreamer went to Africa to save the world but died trying to assassinate an vil dictator Both were in her graduation class and she s always regretted not continuing the brief romance that had ignited between her and Jamie at From the author of The Winner Maker and Blackuest 40 comes The Pinebox Vendetta a genre bending thriller that combines a love story cold case murder mystery and political blood feud – told over the course of a single breathless weekendThe Gallaghers and Pruitts have dominated the American political landscape dating back to Revolutionary times The Yale University class of 1996 had one of ach and as the twenty year reunion approaches the families He nd of their studies "and wondered why Rock was never prosecuted for Derek s death Over the course of "wondered why Rock was never prosecuted for Derek s death Over the course of reunion weekend old secrets will be aired Apocalyptic Cartography enmities revived and public figures ruined as the vendetta fires up againI m interested in andnjoy reading about politics although don t understand the American system This was an ntertaining introduction to some wonderfully loathsome characters but it s important to realise this isn t a complete story just the beginning of a saga otherwise you could be disappointed by the nding as much is left unresolved and justice is not served It s not a long book and so much is left unexplained including xactly what the titular Pinebox is hopefully this will be revealed in future booksI liked the sly humour and caricatures neither side is spared although the author s sympathies are clearly to the left and the cynical way the Gallaghers would put forward an amiable male moron for the Democratic nomination while his clever successful businesswoman cousin pulls the strings felt sadly realistic while the powerful Pruitts cover up all wrongdoing by the monstrous Rock and still consider letting him run for state office also mblematic of all that s wrong with the country s system There are no very likeable characters here Heart and Soul / Almost Heaven even the nice well meaning ones like Sam and Joss are a bit too self interested and make some silly decisions this wasn t a problem for me in this caseThe antagonists were wickedlyntertaining I would ve strangled Abe with his power cable he s such a pathetically petulant loser There is a sort of love
