A shadowy billionaire pulls the strings behind a presidential election in this political thriller by a national bestselling author. In this twisting, ferocious novel of suspense, the presidential race has a number of men all clawing to get to the top. Each has a closet where his skeletons are locked away—and one man holds every key. Julian Mellow has spent his life amassing a fortune out of low-risk, high-reward investments. But the one time in his life he got in over his head, he left another man holding the bag and made an enemy for life, one who has nothing to lose. Now, Mellow has an even greater ambition—to use his wealth and power to select the next president of the United States—and to make that man do his bidding, in business and beyond. In a story that ranges from the United States to an African nation where a brutal dictator reigns and a resistance movement lurks in the alleys, Presidents' Day spans the globe to weave together a brilliant portrait of politics at its most venal, where murder is a part of the political process, where anyone's life is up for sale, and where one man—that bad penny of an enemy—could bring the whole kingdom toppling . . . This gripping read comes from the author of Losing Isaiah, the basis of the film of the same name, and The Semper Sonnet, praised by Phillip Margolin as "a wildly imaginative thriller."
