Jackie Rooney writes a weekly column in the Florida-Times Union called Rooney Bin
Jackie Rooney writes, "In a departure from the previous theme of international action with religious overtones, Gorman's third book ia a novel of political intrigue.Herb Atkinsen, a politician of high moral character, agrees to run for a second term, despite polarization in DC and depression over his wife's death. His choice of a running mate shocks party delegates, but offers a symbol there is honor in politics. As a cynical journalist quips, 'Profiles in courage are the exception rather than the rule."'
