In the summer of 1952, 20 prominent men gather at a secret meeting on Martha's Vineyard and devise a plot to manipulate the President of the United States. Soon after, the body of one of these men is found by Eddie Wesley, Harlem's rising literary star. When Eddie's younger sister mysteriously disappears, Eddie and the woman he loves, Aurelia Treene, are pulled into what becomes a 20-year search for the truth. As Eddie and Aurelia uncover layer upon layer of intrigue, their odyssey takes them from the wealthy drawing rooms of New York through the shady corners of radical politics, all the way to the Oval Office.
Stephen Carter's novel is as complex as it is suspenseful, and with his unique ability to turn stereotypes inside out, Palace Council is certain to enthrall listeners to the very last moment.

I've read most of Stephen L. Carters novels and they've all been nothing short of Amazing. Palace Council really kept me in the moment and super engaged from the opening introduction to the surprising and unexpected ending. I hope there is more to come from.Carter.
It certainly comparable to his previous novels, The Emperor of Ocean Park and New England White.
My Favorite was Eddie Wesley
Tell well worded and explosive description of how Kevin Garland was blown up.
