Affairs, white supremacists, impeachment-a political thriller hailed as "Seven Days in May for the twenty-first century" (Clem Chambers, author of The Shrine). US president Steve Wade believes his latest affair, with the beautiful Lucia Benoni, is a secret. When Lucia is murdered under mysterious circumstances, FBI agent Kelly Smith is called to investigate. As he dives deeper into the case, he uncovers links between Lucia, a hostile foreign power, a group of vicious white supremacists, and a shadowy high-placed Washington figure known only as "Fox." As Wade continues to deny the affair, the press gets on the trail and latches onto the sensational breaking story with increasing tenacity. Because of the national security implications, there are demands in Congress for his impeachment. Vice President Ellen Trevathan should, by law, take power, but Fox and his associates have other plans. As time runs out, Kelly may hold the only key to preventing a coup d'etat and nothing short of civil war. "Action-packed . . . Fast-moving political and legal suspense." -Booklist "Skillfully builds tension in sharp prose." -Leigh Russell, author of The Adulterer's Wife "As convincing as it is frightening." -David Ambrose, author of Superstition "Readers' taste for densely packed, fast-moving political thrillers remains as keen as ever, and it is good to welcome Peter Murphy to the ranks of the best practitioners in the field with this weighty and impressive novel." -Crime Time
