The Campaign of Peerless Kent is a synthesis of Pulp Fiction, Mad Men and a bit of the spirit of Frank Capra’s Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. A humorous and fast-paced novel through which the author also offers commentary on the current political atmosphere, growing up, personal integrity, cowardice, perseverance and, of course, love. A good read and hopefully there will be additional novels of the adventures and misadventures of Peerless Kent from Mr. Hengstrum! – Amazon Review
