Great White House by Christoph Paul
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The water level is rising in Washington DC and the Chinese are to blame. Meanwhile, PETA has released genetically modified great white sharks into the Potomac river and they're heading for the White House! Can President Obama and the rest of Congress find a way to pay off America's debt to the Chinese before they all become shark chow?
Great White House is Jaws meets C-Span and is just ridiculous as that elevator pitch sounds. The Chinese are holding Washington DC for ransom with a weather controlling matching and ravenous great whites that can live in fresh water. Can Obama set aside his differences with the conservative Senate and his paralyzing fear of sharks?
Christoph Paul and the mighty Arthur Graham do a great job melding political satire and wholesale carnage. Many politicos are bitten in half, or worse, in the process of staying above the rising water and figuring out which programs to cut in order to pay off America's debt to the Chinese.
The cliffhanger ending hits like a bullet to a tank of compressed air lodged in the mouth of a great white shark. Fortunately, the sequel, Great White House 2: Billary Bites Back, is already available. 3.5 out of five stars.
