The Perfect Candidate

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


From debut author Peter Stone comes a heart-stopping, pulse-pounding political thriller that’s perfect for fans of Ally Carter and House of Cards.

When recent high school graduate Cameron Carter lands an internship with Congressman Billy Beck in Washington, DC, he thinks it is his ticket out of small town captivity. What he lacks in connections and Beltway polish he makes up in smarts, and he soon finds a friend and mentor in fellow staffer Ariel Lancaster.

That is, until she winds up dead.

As rumors and accusations about her death fly around Capitol Hill, Cameron’s low profile makes him the perfect candidate for an FBI investigation that he wants no part of. Before he knows it—and with his family’s future at stake—he discovers DC’s darkest secrets as he races to expose a deadly conspiracy.

If it doesn’t get him killed first.

From Publishers Weekly

03 September 2018 – Cameron Carter, a recent high school graduate from Lagrima, Calif., is starting his dream job as a summer intern for his local congressman. Though younger than the other interns, Cameron quickly catches the eye of Ariel Lancaster, a staff member and intern coordinator who begins to mentor him. When Ariel asks for Cameron's help with a special project, he feels destined for greatness. But then Ariel is killed in what seems to be a drunk driving accident, and after someone who could be FBI approaches Cameron, he realizes that he may not be ready for a conspiracy-laden Washington, D.C., life. Debut novelist Stone, a former Capitol Hill staffer, imbues this political thriller with an insider's peek into the lives of Washington's interns, from scenes of reception-jumping for the free food to a list of the "50 hottest staffers on Capitol Hill." This authenticity grounds the story, allowing readers to suspend disbelief that an 18-year-old intern could so quickly end up working as a spy. Stone has created a YA version of the TV show Scandal, and it is just as addictive. Ages 12 up.
