    A highly ambitious Senator who is having an extramarital affair with a younger woman with the misfortune to drown in the ocean is the main plot that sets the tone for this dramatic, suspenseful novel. Senator Don knows there is just too much at stake here, trying to come up with an alibi and an elaborate scheme since all eyes are on him publicly, including the victim's father. Things are getting dicey during the investigation; and readers will get to experience politics in all its gory, deceptive glory. You'll definetely recognize the vast depths of corruption that has no bounds in today's world behind White House closed doors, written in an intelligent and thought-provoking style.I kind of find myself grateful to be middle class because while we have our own quiet sorrows, they are kept in our private world and don't see the light of day in the form of a newspaper or magazine story or news report, so we have to deal with them out in the open - Just my thoughts on one of the big differences between "us" and the wealthy elite in America, and how a life lived so greatly out in the public eye can have an effect on one's integrity and sense of awareness.

    This is an interesting story about a presidential candidate who is involved in an accidental drowning and the impact on his political career.This book would be best for an individual with a strong interest in politics. There is minimal action and a great deal of analysis of various political strategies.In light of the present path to President of branding your opponent with a nasty name and continually repeating that name until the public accepts it as the truth it makes much of the discussions which took place in this book moot.

    I am sure that some will enjoy this book. The characters were very believable. A presidential candidate and his group of people. The plot in my opinion was very good. The book was easy to read and understand. My only problem was it seemed slow. It took me longer then normal to read because I got to sections that for me were easy to put down.I read this book in exchange for an honest review for Reading Alley

    Reminds me too much of the Ted Kennedy 'accident' when his car with him and other woman went off the bridge and she died. They were partying/drinking, etc., with other members of his staff and I think politicians. It was almost several hours before the accident was reported and now I see why. They, too, had to come up with some strategy to save his you know what. Even the time element appears to be the same. Ten cents for a phone call, Woodstock mentioned being a few years prior and there were a few other things that I can't remember. I believe this was one reason Ted did not run for the 'House'. I really think this author had that tragedy in mind when writing this book. But that's my opinion. ( I can't remember the town tho.. Something like Chapp.....something. Been a long time ago.)

    This is a brisk, cerebral tale of political scandal and suspense. Warren Adler has crafted a story that is as smart as it is thrilling. The book opens up with the accidental death of Marlena, an intelligent and fierce black woman, and a philandering senator is involved. There is a certain familiarity to the story, and somehow that makes it all that more satisfying. Marlena’s death becomes another cog in the political machine that propels forward plans, schemes, and aspirations that ultimately have little to do with the scandal itself and more to do with how people want to use it. This is not just a thriller, but a subtle commentary on today’s political landscape.

    This is the first book that I have read by Warren Adler and I thought it was fantastic! Undertow is one of few political thrillers that I have had the pleasure of reading but it packs a punch. The turns and scandals in this story kept me on the edge of my seat. The characters were marvelous as the plot thickened with the politician’s lies to cover up the unfortunate drowning. With so much to lose, how far is too far for the Senator? The author has delivered a well-written, interesting novel that is sure to please. I highly recommend it!
