Description de l’éditeur
Republican President James Whitcomb is in his third year in office. With the next presidential election fast approaching, his chief of staff has decided to begin his reelection campaign by making appearances across the country, speaking directly to the voters, without the filter of the hostile mainstream media. Whitcomb has decreed that one of those appearances will be in Phoenix, AZ. His chief of staff is not surprised.
Meanwhile, the publisher of the New York CHRONICLE, the leading progressive newspaper in the country, has plans of his own. Jake Rosen believes he has information about the president that, if true, will enable Rosen to control the White House. To effectuate his plan, Rosen has developed a source in the White House who is feeding Rosen the information he needs to further his plot.
However, unknown to the White House, and Rosen, there is another scheme to attack the Whitcomb administration. A domestic terrorist group, with cells throughout the West, including Phoenix, has also targeted Whitcomb. Their unrelated but concurrent conspiracy seeks to cripple his presidency.
The characters in this political satire, good and bad, many unknown to each other, converge on Phoenix. The final result leaves many losers, but not so many winners.
