In this riveting novel by two of Washington’s ultimate insiders, the chain of command is threatened when political power is bought in blood.

Secret Service Agent Michael Delaney has devoted his entire career to protecting America’s highest ranking elected officials. But when his gun is found next to the bloody corpse of the President of the United States, he becomes the prime suspect in a brutal assassination that stuns the nation. As the vice president assumes control of the shaken government, a series of violent terrorist attacks is launched in cities across America, causing the government to take ever more desperate steps to keep the population safe. Shockingly, the resourceful enemy they are fighting comes not from another country but from within America’s borders.

Unsure who he can trust, Delaney finds an unexpected ally in Mary Campos, the president’s newly appointed terrorism czar. With each passing hour, the potential for catastrophe grows and the web of evidence implicating Delaney in the plot grows more convincing. It will take all his cunning and years of special training to find out who is framing him for the murder of a president. Not only are his reputation and liberty at stake but the liberty of all Americans.

Former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger and acclaimed writer Peter Schweizer take readers deep inside the U.S. government’s secret halls of power. From the Pentagon to Camp David, from the White House Situation Room to the inner sanctums of the FBI, the authors share their intimate knowledge of Washington’s behind-the-scenes world to spin an explosive tale of intrigue that is chillingly real and breathtakingly suspenseful.In this riveting novel by two of Washington’s ultimate insiders, the chain of command is threatened when political power is bought in blood.

Douglas Miller says:

A very good book It’s nice having the former Secretary of Defense write a book as you really get the accuracy of inside the government. I really liked this book and couldn’t put it down. It’s on the order of the Baldacci books.

Konrad Kern says:

See storylines above Weinberger and Schweizer have put together a novel that is definitely fast and highly entertaining, with enough thrills to please most thriller fans. The only slight drawback was that the plot seemed just a little farfetched, though it was fun to read.Recommended for the thrills

PB says:

Couldn’t put it down I loved the story from the first page. If you want a political thriller that starts on page one and carries through until the end, this is it. Having read other reviews, I believe Mr. Weinberger’s past employment may be tainting people’s perceptions of the book. People are different in their political stance so they may not like the book based on ‘principle’ but I truly believe that if you want an exciting read, this will be it. Sadly, it will also be the only as Mr. Weinberger has passed.
