Description

In the peaceful countryside of the midwest a conspiracy has been born, its leaders among the most respected names in America. They believe their cause is just: to save the nation from leaders too timid to make the tough decisions. Their goal is the White House, and their principle weapon is so preposterous that no one would believe it exists. Ben Driskill, Wall Street attorney and longtime buddy of President Charles Bonner, gets the first hint of the conspiracy when he finds his mentor Drew Summerhayes shot, an apparent suicide, at his Shelter Island home. Summerhayes himself is so closely linked to the White House that the avid rumors about his death taint President Bonner, battling a re-election challenge from within his won party. Not trusting those closest to him, Bonner asks Ben Driskill to investigate quietly. Then there are two more killings, this time on the bluffs above the Mississippi, at a serene little town in Iowa called Saints Rest. And before long Ben Driskill is trying to save more than Charlie Bonner's presidency. He's trying to save the future of free elections in the United States. As in Thomas Gifford's New York Times bestseller, The Assassini, Ben Driskill is the quintessential ordinary man moved to extraordinary measures--too stubborn and too angry to see the odds against him.
