Overlords of K Street

Availability: Ready to download

All Joel Wilson had ever wanted was to be a newspaper man. And after years of struggling in various small-town Minnesota papers he’d made it all the way to the New York Herald. But after years of budget and staff cuts and nothing but a depressing future on the horizon for the newspaper business, Wilson had taken a buyout. He’d moved to Costa Rica looking for a new life.

But after years of budget and staff cuts and nothing but a depressing future on the horizon for the newspaper business, Wilson had taken a buyout. He’d moved to Costa Rica looking for a new life. A little seaside town, a Costa Rican girlfriend, and a relaxed, inconsequential life had put a spring back in his step. But soon the world he’d once covered for the Herald, the world of political corruption and power-mongering, came calling in the form of an old friend with awful news:His ex-wife, a U.S. attorney, has gone missing. The police, thinking her dead, have already given up the search. It’s up to Joel, with the help of his old newspaper buddies, to find her. Their search uncovers a web of corruption that leads from a plot of land in St. Augustine, Florida, all the way to the hallowed halls of Washington, D.C.

    I don't often share book recommendations, but I just finished the novel Overlords of K Street and really enjoyed it. The story is part-Washington scandal and part-private detective novel. The story skips between Costa Rica, Florida, Washington DC, and the Bahamas and really puts the reader in each place. James Hargreaves is an ex-journalist, and he has news ink in his veins. His seasoned-reporter perspective reminds us why solid journalism still matters in our country, but the plot is fact-paced I don't often share book recommendations, but I just finished the novel Overlords of K Street and really enjoyed it.

Hargreaves style compares favorably with James Lee Burke, Carl Hiaasen, and Robert B. Parker.

    This was an interesting novel with a lot of things going on. Personally, I would have liked fewer characters and more about the characters. When I finished it, I couldn't remember most of their names; there were just so many, most with similar roles. I felt that the story was a little wordy; towards the end I wondered when it was going to end. This was an interesting novel with a lot of things going on.

    Hargreaves' affable, yet intense narrator takes us on a dizzying journey across five cities and three countries with a story that links journalism, congressional misdeeds and private enterprise excess. Hargreaves is a born storyteller. I suspect this first novel is far from his last!
