Publisher Description

One secret could bring down the government when the President's memorable affair becomes a nightmare he longs to forget in this page-turner from James Patterson that will keep you up reading all night long.

Sally Grissom is a top Secret Service agent in charge of the Presidential Protection team. She knows that something is amiss when she's summoned to a private meeting with the President and his Chief of Staff without any witnesses. But she couldn't have predicted that she'd be forced to take on an investigation surrounding the mysterious disappearance of the First Lady -- with strict orders to keep it a secret.

The First Lady's absence comes in the wake of the scandalous, public revelation of the president's affair, so at first it seems as though she is simply cutting off all contact as she recuperates at a horse farm in Virginia. What begins as an innocent respite quickly turns into a twisted case when the White House receives a ransom note along with the First Lady's finger.

    " Agree with Tabitha’s review. The mispronounced words make me wince! "

    " To start off, the book itself is excellent, although I do wish Mr. Patterson would either stop referencing people of color while describing a character, or include that white people are white. Pet peeve. Book is great. What stinks about this book is the woman reading it. She mispronounces SO MANY words, it's so hard to concentrate when you hear "Pot-oh-mack" instead of "Puh-toe-mick" or "Mary-land" instead of "Mare-ah-lund" - and don't get me started on Poncho Villa or Arapahoe. Anyway, it's very hard to believe that Mr. Patterson approved this actress. If you can get past that, it's a very enjoyable book. Wish I had read it instead of listened. "
