Description

It was the deal of the decade, if not the century. A small, insignificant company on the edge of bankruptcy had discovered an alchemist's dream; a miraculous polymer, that when coated on any vehicle, was the equivalent of 30 inches of steel. With bloody conflicts surging in Iraq and Afghanistan, the polymer promises to save thousands of lives and change the course of both wars. Jack Wiley, a successful Wall Street banker, believes he has a found a dream come true when he mysteriously learns of this miraculous polymer. His plan: enlist the help of the Capitol Group, one of the country's largest and most powerful corporations in a quick, bloodless takeover of the small company that developed the polymer. It seems like a partnership made in heaven...until the Pentagon's investigative service begins nosing around, and the deal turns into a nightmare. Now, Jack's back is up against the wall and he and the Capitol Group find themselves embroiled in the greatest scandal the government and corporate America have ever seen...?

Professional reviews

"THE CAPITOL GAME has a complex plot that narrator Scott Brick handles with precision. Brick's delivery is packed with emotion as he presents the ebb and flow of dirty tricks played by this thriller's cast of combative characters. Jack Wiley, a Wall Street banker, discovers a miracle polymer that makes Humvees, tanks, and the like bomb proof once the coating is applied. Whoever controls the polymer stands to bankroll billions and save a few thousand American lives in the process. Wiley's scheme is to partner with one of America's most powerful corporations and fast-track the polymer through the Pentagon. But just how wily is Jack Wiley? Brick has the answers and delivers them with style. T.J.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
