Exploring the fine line between good and evil, Joseph Hayes’ astounding debut novel When No One Is Watching highlights the significant role of personal integrity in the wake of the actions we choose to take in compromising situations. The stark contrast executed by Hayes between a dark, twisted character against a noble, dignified one is quite riveting.

Blair Van Howe is a promising young political star running for Congress, where a world full of possibilities and opportunities await him. One night returning from a charity event, he inadvertently causes a deadly accident. Panicked about putting his potential political career in jeopardy, Blair perpetrates an elaborate cover-up and frames his best friend Danny Moran, a good-hearted alcoholic, and flees the scene.

A well-respected prominent attorney, Danny is responsible for paving the way for Blair’s rise in the political arena. In the end, one innocent man tries to pick up the pieces of his shattered life while the other embarks on a heroic rise to political stardom.

A twist in the story comes when a nosy detective digs deeper into the accident, convinced that there is more to what appears to the eyes. As time races, Blair must decide just how far is he willing to go to keep his deep, dark secret in the name of advancing greater good.

Hayes’ well-formulated political thriller When No One Is Watching addresses various ethical and moral issues associated with personal integrity while the plot’s major themes concentrate on an array of topics ranging from ambition, corruption to betrayal and redemption. The question deeply explored in this intriguing novel is whether what we do for the greater good justifies the things we do when no one is watching.

An absorbing and a highly thought-provoking novel, Hayes’ nuanced writing and expert plotting makes this a seamless political thriller you will never forget. As we turn pages, we are left to marvel at its perfection from cover to cover. What a fine novel!
