New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods returns with another page-turning thriller.

President Will Lee is having a rough week. His vice president just died during surgery. Confirmation hearings for the new vice president are under way, but the squeaky-clean governor whom Will has nominated may have a few previously unnoticed skeletons in his closet. And Teddy Fay, the rogue CIA agent last seen in Shoot Him if He Runs, is plotting his revenge on CIA director Kate Rule Lee—the president’s wife. Plus there are some loose nukes in Pakistan that might just trigger World War III if Will’s diplomatic efforts fall short. It’s up to President Lee—with some help from Holly Barker, Lance Cabot, and a few other Stuart Woods series regulars—to save the world, and the upcoming election.

    " I have always liked the Will E books, this one was no disappointment "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tricia Hock | 2/15/2014

    " Not one of Stuart Woods best -- There was a lot going on in this book and I'm not sure that any of the plots were ever resolved. Very disappointing ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda Foos | 2/4/2014

    " I don't usually read the "Will Lee" series, but this has many familiar characters and a good story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/29/2014

    " Typical Woods.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Penny | 1/26/2014

    " You get worse and worse. I used to love Will Lee but you've ruined him for me. My favorite of all your novels is still "Run Before the Wind". What happened to that author? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/20/2014

    " This book seemed like a contractual obligation. The story was forced and so was the ending. I normally really enjoy Stuart Woods books, any of them, but this one just was no where up to par. It setup the next book in the series, but that seemed to be about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Grover | 1/18/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith | 12/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Giordano | 12/19/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leisa | 12/16/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 12/10/2013

    " Diverting and quick "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 11/6/2012

    " Very good read. It's set around the politics of Washington, which I was afraid might get too complicated by Woods does a nice job of explaining things in a clear fashion. I enojoyed it quite a bit. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 5/27/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 12/23/2011

    " Stuart Woods is the master at intrigue and suspense. He is also good at leaving the reader waiting for the next book. There are too many unanswered questions left open. Anxiously waiting for Will Lee, #8! "
