by Jonathan Javitt




Capt. Gwen Maulder, a hardworking FDA medical officer is traumatically thrust onto the trail of a small, but mysterious epidemic of fatal seizures, all among young professionals. The culprit seemingly kills without a trace, no matter how deeply she probes. As Gwen attempts to probe the mystery, the opposition to her investigation rises, far out of proportion to its scope. At the heart of story is a chilling scheme to manipulate the lives of millions through genetic modification, conceived and executed by those in the highest possible positions of public trust. As Gwen and her allies attempt to overcome dangerous adversity the reader is left to wonder whether anything today can be truly safe to eat or drink or breathe. Gwen's story is as real as tomorrow's headlines.

I really like this read. It a wild ride from start to finish with well-developed characters. Some of the situations that the characters are presented with are a bit far-fetched, which kept me from giving it five full stars, but it truly kept my interest. I would recommend it to anyone who likes intrigue and thrilling action in a good story.

Capitol Reflections is a cross between a political thriller and a medical/scientific suspense novel. It grips you right from the start and never lets up. It's based around a very topical issue, that of genetic modifications, and really leaves you wondering about what our food really consists of. Do I really trust my coffee roaster?

The good guys are a varied bunch and are interesting characters. The bad guys are sufficiently nasty. The suspense builds nicely as the book progresses and the ending wraps up with an unexpected twist.

Some of the technology is out of date but, other than that, I can find little fault with this book. It is well written and edited. A very enjoyable read.

What's not to like? Some good guys versus some powerful bad guys, throw in some politicians (good and bad), makes for a fun story. Here are 400 pages that move right along to a conclusion that does not kill off all the good guys but still has a final twist. Offhand, I do not remember any explicit sex scenes nor any cursing or other offensive language. Now do not take that to mean this was a religious story in any way - it was not. It was just a plain old thriller that did not require the use of sex and offensive words to tell a fun story. I will have to look for more of Mr. Javitt's books.

Best wishes,

I found Capitol Reflections to be an entertaining and quite relevant to the times novel. Recent articles by Organic Authority point out the same thing the author of Capitol Reflections points out in his note at the end...we simply don't know what the health ramifications of GMOs are.

The story is fast paced and mostly well written. It dragged a bit in a few places but for the most part I enjoyed it and would recommend it to those who enjoy a good thriller.

I'm always looking for new authors and Jonathan Javitt will most definitely be on my list. I'm anxious to see what he comes up with next.

This story had me hooked even before the death of a friend of one of the main characters. It has everything...conspiracies, government cover ups, hit men, you name it, this book has it. Along with interesting characters that either don't get fully developed or just when you hunger for more, the story turns elsewhere. Sure like any good novel it all comes together but for me it was a frustrating, not a satisfying journey.

Amazing book. English is not my first language, therefor some of the syntax were problematic for me. This book is written by a very highly educated man and it shows.

Now for the story. I did like it. It is intense and moves at a good pace. The science behind it is amazingly scary. Like I said political scientific thriller.

I clicked on the book when it was a Kindle Special, and I am glad. It's an entertaining read that really picks up the pace in the second part, and it runs at a clip until the very end. If you enjoy political thrillers and stories about corporate corruption , this is up your alley.
Despite the cover of the Capitol, this is a medical mystery, more than a political one.
There are too many characters, and I lost track of personalities after a while.
The story kept my attention to the end; however, I doubt the story will be remembered after a week.
