Seduction and intrigue are rampant on the campaign trail when a political campaign adviser discovers that Washington’s power broker elite have embroiled his presidential candidate in a plot involving an act of terrorism on US soil.Democratic political campaign consultant Ben Brinker can’t remember the last time he was excited by a candidate’s vision. He feels he’s lost his way, both emotionally and professionally.

Worst yet, his show-me-the-money policy seems to have finally caught up with him. Two of his recent clients have been disgraced in one way or another: a senator is caught in lurid sex scandal, and a congressman is indicted in a kickback scheme. In no time at all the political pundits are calling Ben a “candidate cooler.” Now Ben is desperate for any campaign gig he can get.

As luck would have it, Andrew Harris Mansfield, the charismatic junior senator from North Carolina and former Marine pilot, asks Ben if he wants to run his soon-to-be-announced campaign for president. Little does Ben know what’s in store for Andrew, or their country. Nor does he realize that the key to saving both have been placed in his hands.

“More than a political thriller.A great read, great ride, great book!” —Amazon’s Robert D

“Josie lays out the danger immediately and drew me into the story by showing what was at stake. Her characters have depth, enough to which I cared about them or wanted to shake them senseless. This story had me hanging on to the climatic finish, which to me was infinitely satisfying.” —Mystery_Luvr, Barnes & Noble.

“I could not put it down, it was so entertaining I broke my own rule of saving it to read on the treadmill and curled up with as cup of coffee to read!”—Amazon’s Raymond F.

“It was exceptional. The title is intriguing, the plot is intriguing, there is never a dull moment. I wish more people would read this book so they would understand how incredibly awesome it is! 5 stars by far!” —Fler, Barnes & Noble

“The book had me from the first chapter and I could not put it down…an easy read.”—Amazon’s Jackie A.
