The president has gone way too far.... These are practically dictatorial methods we're talking about.

When Democratic Senator Bruce Jansen is elected president of the United States, it is a personal victory for Dorothy 'Dottie' Rogers. She has secured a job in the White House, has proved to her Republican father that she was right to support Jansen, and is proud to see the rise of an intelligent, inspiring leader who shares her ideals.

But the triumph is short-lived: Jansen's pregnant wife is assassinated on election night, and the alleged mastermind behind the shooting is none other than Dottie's own father. When Jansen ascends to the White House, he is a changed man, determined to end gun violence by any means necessary.

Rights are taken away as quickly as weapons. Checkpoints and roadblocks destroy infrastructure. The media is censored. Militias declare civil war on the government. The country is in chaos, and Dottie finds herself fighting for the life of her father, who just may be innocent.

Genre: Thriller

Praise for this book

"A tantalizing and timely premise makes this political thriller one of those all-too-real scenarios that leave you thinking once you’re done. Spicy, smart and entertaining." - Steve Berry
