In Donna Bryant Sikes’ fast-paced new novel, we are plunged into the high-stakes, power-fuelled world of politics. Cody Brand grew up on a ranch in West Central Georgia, but works as a Secret Service operative in Washington, DC. Cody is alarmed to find out that three of the men who report to him have been framed while overseas. His close colleague, press secretary Casie Bode, is not giving up any details and seems to be trying to avoid him. Then events take a darker turn, and Cody is certain that he is being tailed and targeted, his life now in danger. Unsure whom to trust, shuttling between the two worlds of Georgia and DC, trying to figure out what is true and what is the right thing to do —even against overwhelming odds—Cody Brand is an action hero for our times.
Readers will be wowed by this dynamic political thriller, which pulls no punches in its believable depiction of a democracy in chaos and an American government spiraling completely out of control.
