AMAZING...AN ENGROSSING THRILLER
on June 8, 2000
J.D. Cade is a trained killer for his country, a past he has put behind himself, until he becomes the victim of a sinister blackmailing scheme.
The plan is simple...J.D. must assassinate Franklin Delano Rawley, the first African/American on the verge of being the president of the United States.
In order to gain the cooperation of J.D., the blackmailer uses his son, Evan, as a pawn in this game.
J.D. must race quickly and carefully, to save himself, his son and the next president, for his every move is being watched.
The sub-plot involving Evan is so good it could have carried the entire book. The writing is first rate and similar to the very best of Stephen Hunter.
"The Next President" is EXCELLENT, FAST-PACED, ENTERTAINMENT. Everything about this novel works...Feuding families, family secrets, tough characters, explosive action, shocking plot twists and fast pacing, you can't ask for a better summer read.
A MUST read!
