Publisher's Summary

US Attorney General Allison Leahy is the Democrats' best chance for holding on to the Oval Office. But she's running neck and neck with her opponent, Republican Lincoln Howe, a retired four-star general and bona fide African American hero. Then, days before the election, disaster strikes.
Twelve-year-old Kristen Howe, the general's granddaughter, is kidnapped. As the nation's leading law enforcement officer, Allison launches a nationwide manhunt - even as her opponent publicly questions her motives. For Allison, though, finding Kristen isn't about politics. It's a personal crusade that taps in to terrifying secrets buried deep within the past - secrets that can shatter all of Allison's hopes, twisting them into a nightmare of lies and the ultimate betrayal.

Outstanding political mystery/thriller!

Author James Grippando is best known for his legal thrillers in the Jack Swytek series. This novel, published in 1998, is about the fictional year 2000 US presidential election. The publisher's summary sets it up well. Narration by Paul Hecht is excellent. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Very Engaging

Good depth of characters. Depicts the crazy political and selfish world of today. While the author over used the word grimace and the reader mispronounced it, I could overlook the blunder because the story outshined the error.
