It is very easy to get caught up in Open Primary by A. C. Fuller because there are so many types of stories in one well-crafted package. Subtitled as Ameritocracy, Book 1, there is a story of relationships; one of daughter and father, and one of Mia and possible romantic interest. There is a woman-makes-good story, as Mia develops a groundbreaking social media application. This is a technology thriller as clever computer geeks subvert the intention of Mia’s efforts … and Mia fights back. Readers will find a political thriller as a third party attempts to challenge the Democratic and Republican establishments. Remember Ross Perot? Finally, this is a collection of character studies as several candidates are vying for first place in a hypothetical run to replace the current POTUS.
