Mike Ford was following his father into a life of crime, when he chose to go straight and instead worked his way through Harvard Law School. Now he's landed the ultimate job with the Davies Group, a powerful political consulting firm run by the charismatic Henry Davies. Rubbing shoulders with Washington's heavyweights and with more money and privileges than he's ever imagined, Mike believes that everything has finally come right.


But he's about to discover that power comes with a price. Henry Davies is looking for a protege for a crucial deal and one that must go right no matter what. Mike soon learns that being on the side of the lawmakers doesn't mean your work is legal. And there's no place for a moral code when you're on the devil's payroll.

THE 500 is a fast-paced thriller that takes the reader on a journey through the corridors of power to the crack dens of Washington and the corrupt underbelly of American politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
THE FIRM goes to Washington, only with a whole lot more action * James Patterson *
THE 500 is a riveting page-turner in the tradition of John Grisham's THE FIRM. It's smart, intriguing, packed with action and heart, and loaded with detail on the hidden workings of Washington. It's going to be the big debut thriller of the year * Jeff Abbott *
What an absolutely phenomenal, kickass thriller. I can't remember the last time a novel has left me this breathless. This one's going to be huge * Joseph Finder *
THE 500 delivers a whole new level of urgency and political relevance - and high-octane storytelling - all in the smart, sharp voice of a con-man turned Washington insider. Get ready to cancel appointments for this one. Full of fascinating detail, gritty action and the ever-appealing lure of the con, THE 500 won't let you put it down * Zoe Ferraris *
A thundering David-and-Goliath tale of corruption...This is a real page turner, with high stakes action that doesn't stop * Booklist (Starred Review) *
