The First Lady
One secret could bring down the government when the President's memorable affair becomes a nightmare he longs to forget in this page-turner from James Patterson that will keep you up reading all night long.
Sally Grissom is a top Secret Service agent in charge of the Presidential Protection team. She knows that something is amiss when she's summoned to a private meeting with the President and his Chief of Staff without any witnesses. But she couldn't have predicted that she'd be forced to take on an investigation surrounding the mysterious disappearance of the First Lady -- with strict orders to keep it a secret.
The First Lady's absence comes in the wake of the scandalous, public revelation of the president's affair, so at first it seems as though she is simply cutting off all contact as she recuperates at a horse farm in Virginia. What begins as an innocent respite quickly turns into a twisted case when the White House receives a ransom note along with the First Lady's finger.
Typical James Patterson fare. Fast paced. Interesting plot. Narrator has a great voice, but where is she from? Who mispronounces such words as Maryland? Potomac? Arapahoe? and even stirrups? Does the audiobook publisher need a QC dept? The mispronunciations were a distraction at first, but this is limited mostly to proper names. I assume that Ms. McBride is from a galaxy far away - maybe Canada? An otherwise entertaining experience.
A lot of mispronounced words. Odd. Very odd.

Fun read- corruption and infidelity in White House
Kept me up until late hours finishing this book.
James Patterson has his name attached to almost anything these days... finally one to enjoy.
