In James Patterson’s new stand-alone thriller, one secret can bring down a government when the President’s affair to remember becomes a nightmare he wishes he could forget.
Sally Grissom is a top-secret service agent in charge of the Presidential Protection team. She knows that something is amiss when she is summoned to a private meeting with the President and his Chief of Staff without any witnesses. But she couldn’t have predicted that she’d be forced to take on an investigation surrounding the mysterious disappearance of the First Lady–with strict orders to keep it a secret.
The First Lady’s absence comes in the wake of the scandalous, public revelation of the president’s affair, so at first it seems as though she is simply cutting off all contact as she recuperates at a horse farm in Virginia. What begins as an innocent respite quickly reveals itself as a twisted case when the White House receives a ransom note along with the First Lady’s finger.
My husband gave me this book for my birthday in March (what was he thinking?) and I knew it was not my cup of tea, but I read it and I was right.
Why would I want to read about politics when I can see and hear about it everyday (all day) on television ,radio, and the internet?
I’m sorry, Mr. Patterson, but I gave this book two stars and that was being kind.
People, don’t waste your time.
