Political Thrillers  

A political thriller is a novel that revolves around political intrigue and power struggles. Many political thrillers are set in Washington D.C., as the world of politics is ripe with potential for conflict and betrayal. The genre often features characters who are ambitious and unscrupulous, willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Political thrillers are often fast-paced and suspenseful, with plot twists and cliffhangers that keep readers guessing. While each political thriller is unique, they all share a common focus on the dark side of power and the lengths that people will go to acquire it.
