In political thrillers
the heroes or heroines typically get entangled in a web of
political deception and corruption. They are often journalists, intelligence
operatives, or ordinary fellows who
uncover political corruption at the highest
level or prevent the assassination of an eminent political leader.
most political thrillers are action-packed, with a focus on intelligence and
spy operations; although insightful, literate, and politically important
works have been published by insiders.
