Splintered by Thomas London
Once upon a time, Pinocchio was a real boy who couldn’t tell a lie. Now he’s a politician who can’t seem to tell the truth.
As a junior analyst with a powerful lobby firm, nobody was more anonymous than Pinocchio. But when a chance encounter leads to his being labeled, “The Last Honest Man in Washington,” Pinocchio becomes the toast of the town - and an unwitting pawn in a corrupt congressman’s political game. With his new career taking a toll on his marriage - and his relationship with his aging father - Pinocchio finally tells a lie so outrageous that he reverses the magic that once made him a “real man,” and he transforms back into a wooden puppet - live on C-SPAN. Now he has just one week to undo the spell, or he will end his days as a worthless splinter of wood, but to do that, he’s going to need the help of a drunken fairy and a family of talking insects...
Part satire, part thriller, "Splintered" is a genre-shattering look at American politics that takes readers on a whimsical journey from the halls of Congress to the beaches of the Caribbean, and on to an amazing dreamland where anything is possible.
