Teresa LaBella is a highly descriptive writer. With her words, she will make you see what the characters see, as if you were standing beside them.
Capital Strings is so well written and intelligently plotted, I’m surprised this isn’t already optioned for Netflix. I was about four chapters into this book when I caught myself wishing the story was on a screen. Cable, movie, doesn’t matter. It has that much potential for a strong visual story. This political thriller, refreshingly set in Canada instead of Washington DC, has the pace of Scandal and the complexity of West Wing and House of Cards combined. The research and details are incredibly smart and realistic. There’s even romance, as well as the expected sexual games within politics. LaBella has a strong grip on plotting, and the characters are luscious.
