Plot Summary of Palace Council:
Palace Council is a political thriller about a powerful group plotting to use the US President as a puppet.
My Thoughts on Palace Council:
Carter is known for writing complex thrillers against the backdrop of Harlem elite society and Palace Council is my favorite of his books so far. Carter sets the political machinations of the powerful against a glittery social scene that adds some fun to the book’s suspicious nature.
Carter weaves real people (Nixon, Langston Hughes) into his fiction – causing me to wonder if something like this could actually happen.
