Number One bestseller Sam Bourne, author of The Righteous Men, delivers this page-turning political conspiracy thriller that goes right to the heart of the US establishment.

Bruised by years of disappointments, political advisor Maggie Costello is finally working for a leader she can believe in.

She, along with the rest of America, has put her trust in President Stephen Baker, believing he can make the world a better place.

But suddenly an enemy surfaces: a man called Vic Forbes reveals first one scandal about the new president, and then another.

He threatens a third revelation - one that will destroy Baker entirely.

When Forbes is found dead, Maggie is thrown into turmoil.

Could the leader she idolizes have been behind Forbes's murder?

Has she been duped by his message of change and hope?

Who is the real Stephen Baker? On the trail of the truth, Maggie is led into the roots of a massive conspiracy that reaches back into history - and goes right to the heart of the US establishment...

Review by

I was slightly disappointed by this novel. I have enjoyed the other novels by Sam Bourne and although this one was readable, it was also pretty forgettable. Although sticking the knife into mega banks is always welcome. Will while away a few hours but that's about it.
