Richard North Patterson graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University and Case Western Reserve School of Law before studying creative writing at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He has worked as a practicing lawyer in San Francisco while writing a string of best-selling legal thrillers. To write his novels, he goes beyond his own experiences in the courtroom to conduct extensive research whenever necessary. Before writing "No Safe Place", Patterson followed the 1996 campaign trail, attended a national political convention, and interviewed a wide variety of political professionals, including a former president, senators, consultants, Secret Service agents, and members of the press.
From the Publisher
Richard Patterson, best known for his bestselling thrillers, turns his pen to the equally vicious and hell-bent world of American politics. His protagonist, Senator Corey Grace, a former Gulf War POW, has a real shot at winning the Republican candidacy for president if he can just navigate the minefield of modern politics without sacrificing his ideals. His romance with a sexy black actress and a secret from his past also threaten to derail his chance at becoming that nearly mythological figure--an honest president.
Corey Grace, a charismatic Republican senator from Ohio and a politician noted for voting his own conscience rather than the party line, becomes locked in a no-holds-barred presidential primary campaign with his rival, a member of the party establishment and leader of the Christian right. Read by Michael Boatman. Reissue.
