Readers looking for a character-driven tale with a strong storyline will enjoy Mike Miller’s Worthy of This Great City, a novel with powerful themes that are masterfully integrated into the plot. Readers will encounter two memorable characters, among others; the journalist, Con Manos, and a celebrity, Ruth Askew. In a city where values of truth and morality are put to the test, where many shady businesses happen, and where hard-core criminals can turn the whole place into a field of intrigue, whose voice can be heard? Can the journalist unveil the political scandal that is brewing, in spite of the odds and obstacles stacked against him?

An entertaining and humorous read, Worthy of This Great City begins by gripping the reader, unveiling aspects of the key characters. Told in the first person narrative — strong and arresting — means the reader is immediately pulled in, intrigued, and this made me want to read more. The writing is great and the plot moves quickly. Overall, this is the kind of novel with a great potential for entertainment. Most interesting is how Mike Miller explored the different layers of his characters.
