This could have and should have been a 5 star book. The author hooks you from the very first page and from there it's non-stop to the end. Only problem is that about once in every two to three pages the reader is knocked out of the story by continuity errors, misused words and various other gaffes that even a mediocre line-editor would have caught.
I don't want to spoil it for anyone but I will say that there were many times that I had a hard time believing that very bright people were so easily duped. It's somewhat like an old B movie where the good guys are so good they never see the bad in others and the bad guys are really bad while the action never stops. If you want to pass some time with some light reading, OK, but for all of the pieces that really do come together it's a little far fetched.
Thankfully, neither turned out to be the case. Mr. McDonald has created a fanciful - but enjoyable novel. One that, though it's verisimilitude tends to stretch the boundaries a just a bit, is still entertaining, captivating, and well thought out.
I'm not even sure I can summarize the story without giving it all away. But suffice it to say that you have a heroic president, beset by personal tragedy, handed something too good to be true on Inauguration Day - and begins to coast as all the nation's ills seem to disappear in record time.
Add in a bit of foreign intrigue to mix with the presidents boredom, a confusing international crisis - or two - and things begin to get really interesting.
Next, cue the experienced intelligence analyst who's got a handle on the cause of all the confusion (and the betrayal about to befall a nation), a young rising star of a female FBI Bureau Chief that crosses paths with him at a most unfortunate time, and now the plot really thickens.
And if that isn't enough to tease you into reading this book, I don't what more I can say.
It's an excellent read. You won't be sorry you partook of it. In fact, you'll come away quite pleased - I'm certain of it.
I did note some other reviewers criticized the editing. And even though there are some errors that should not have been there, it does not detract from the enjoyment of the story.
People who don't want to have the f-word popping up with monotonous regularity should avoid this book. I'm not particular put off by strong language, but this was used instead of actual dialogue that might mean something. Also, the author should be aware that aircraft carriers, naval destroyers, and seagoing vessels capable of moving tens of millions of troops are probably "ships" rather than "boats."

The story was good with believable characters. Unfortunately its reading was spoilt by too many silly errors & incorrectly chosen descriptive words.Read more
