Publisher's Summary

John Ross is a heartbeat away from the American presidency. The darling of the Right, his meteoric rise to the top seems unstoppable...until FBI agents Stephanie Martin and Mark Elliott come across information connecting him to a shadowy group of right-wing extremists with links going back to the medieval Knights Templar and Richard I of England.
As their investigation deepens, Stephanie and Mark reveal an association prepared to ally itself with organised crime, infiltrate secret services, and bolster right-wing religious and nationalist groups in its quest for power. Strong enough to destabilise governments and run its own political candidates, the group - code named Archangels - has already amassed inordinate influence throughout the globe and John Ross is their final candidate for world domination....

Critic Reviews

"It's ironic that this gem of a political thriller about a secret society's attempt to capture the American presidency was written, read, and produced in Australia. It is also strong evidence that audiobooks are gaining universal popularity. This is a story of an attempt at world domination by Archangel, a secret, multinational organization that dates back to the Knights Templar of the 11th century. This exciting tale shifts in time from the present to the past and back again. Stanley McGeagh tells two stories - one historically correct tale about the rise and fall of a Christian religious order - the other pure, modern-day suspense. McGeagh speaks American, French, German, and Italian accents with ease." (AudioFile Magazine)

What disappointed you about The Final Candidate?

The Narrator. Note to self: Never buy anything with this Narrator.

What could Alan Gold have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Get a decent Narrator to tell your story!

How could the performance have been better?

Another Narrator perhaps?

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Final Candidate?

I couldn't make it through Chapter 2.

Any additional comments?

I want my credit back!
