Vince Flynn, New York Times Bestselling Author

“'24' meets ‘The West Wing' in the most shocking political thriller of the year.  This pulse-pounding political thriller has it all, riveting characters, a spellbinding plot and a shocking conclusion.  Tightly wrought characters battle for survival as the plot hurtles forward at warp speed.  Plan to stay up late.  Highly recommended.”
