A presidential dynasty, an Arab terrorist attack, democracy under siege—Mario Puzo envisioned it all in his eerily prescient 1991 novel The Fourth K.

President Francis Xavier Kennedy is elected to office, in large part, thanks to the legacy of his forebears–good looks, privilege, wealth–and is the very embodiment of youthful optimism. Too soon, however, he is beaten down by the political process and, disabused of his ideals, he becomes a leader totally unlike what he has been before.

When his daughter becomes a pawn in a brutal terrorist plot, Kennedy, who has obsessively kept alive the memory of his uncles’ assassinations, activates all his power to retaliate in a series of violent measures. As the explosive events unfold, the world and those closest to him look on with both awe and horror.

    " The characters are intelligently brought to life. The series of events were not dull at all although it takes you to many circumstances in the book. It's a good read if you really have the time not to miss any happenings and if you remember the numerous characters. I'd vote for this to be a movie. "

    " Interesting departure from Mafia to a different kind of powerful American family, the Kennedys. About a next generation Kennedy who is kidnapped while her father is President. Enjoyable. "

    " Suspenseful story of presidential politics, international terror, and well-meaning goals allowing decisions by those in power to abuse it. "
