Debut novelist Nicolle Wallace sets her thriller, Eighteen Acres, in Washington, D.C. She knows the territory; she was the White House Communications Director for George W. Bush.

USA Today says this first-hand experience stands her well. Patrick Anderson concurs in the Washington Post,

To say that Nicolle Wallace’s Eighteen Acres is one of the best novels I’ve read about life in the White House may be faint praise — there haven’t been many good ones — but her book is both an enjoyable read and a serious look at what high-level political pressures do to people.

The title of the book comes from D.C. insiders’ slang for the White House. One important aspect of the story is not based on real life; it features a female president.
