The second in a series of Jack Sharpe novels, The Wingman begins with David Pepper’s protagonist in the midst of moderating an election-season debate. Sharpe, a wily investigative reporter, has a hunch – something that just doesn’t sit well - about a young congressman running for president. This sixth sense leads his team down many a winding and dark rabbit hole in discovering the truth about the Iraqi war veteran. And of the forces at play in today’s politics. Is the congressman’s illustrious war record all that he claims it is? Is there something sinister behind the deaths of his fellow platoon mates? And what of the mysterious Super-PAC running hyper-negative ads against his closest rivals for the presidential nomination?
The Wingman by David Pepper is a tense political thriller, and a page-turner of the highest order. Rarely do I finish a novel in one sitting, but this one had my full attention from beginning to surprising end. Toss in a shady law firm and an over-the-top weapons contractor, and you have all the ingredients to set the stage for a wild ride. And just when you think you have the answers, David Pepper delivers with another twist – or three - that will have you nodding your head and smiling in appreciation at his ingenuity. The Wingman is equal parts indictment of the current political climate in the United States, a eulogy for the treatment of returning veterans, and a harbinger of a military industrial complex run amok. And all wrapped up in a tautly written thriller masterfully rendered in David Pepper’s capable hands.
