About The Book

A fast-paced, highly readable thriller about a presidential election scandal and a small-town attorney who must take on corrupt politicians and their secret power-hungry backers in order to save America—and the freedom of the entire world as we know it.

They seek ultimate power. Nothing can stand in their way.

Ed Burke has waited a lifetime to become president of the United States.

He's not about to let his nemesis, Mac Foster, stop him now...especially when he's sold his soul for the Oval Office.

Claudia Duval has lived a rough life. And finally, things have turned around for her after meeting the wealthy Hudson Kinney. But is all what it seems?

When a prominent citizen is murdered in Jackson, Tennessee, attorney Jake Reed doesn't want to know the truth. He just wants to get his client off. But as he investigates, he uncovers a sinister scheme. A scheme that would undermine the very democracy of America...and the freedom of the entire world.
