America is rushing headlong into another election, but something is wrong – preposterous candidates jump to the top of the polls while credible candidates fall behind. Cybersecurity super sleuth Frank Adversego must find the Black Hats trying to hack the presidential election, and stop them before they do.In this second Frank Adversego thriller, you'll meet a scheming Native American casino manager, a scrum of presidential candidates too incredible to be believed anywhere outside of a real American election, a former Secretary of Defense who will stop at nothing, and an attractive French hitchhiker that Adversego rescues in the middle of a desert, and soon wishes he hadn't.
The Lafayette Campaign provides a satirical take on American politics and our infatuation with technology that will make readers pause and wonder: could this really happen? Or perhaps it's happened already.
"Andrew Updegrove brings a rare combination of drama, satire and technical accuracy to his writing. The result is a book you can't put down that tells you things you might wish you didn't know." - Admiral James G. Stavridis, retired Commander, U.S. European Command and NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe, and current Dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy
