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

This book is all about the integrity of the election process in the United States… It also points to the importance of the primaries in determining the outcome of an election because the adversaries of the opposition’s best candidate will promote the weaker candidates in order to improve the chances of winning for themselves. Politics is a very tricky business and integrity isn’t an issue for promoting the candidates who will meet the needs of the profiteers… The storyline is about hacking into the election system and altering the outcome. It’s very realistic and thought provoking… We all want honest elections and for democracy to work properly. This one: RECOMMENDED!
