In James Patterson's new stand-alone thriller, one secret can bring down a government when the President's affair to remember becomes a nightmare he wishes he could forget.

Sally Grissom is a top secret service agent in charge of the Presidential Protection team. She knows that something is amiss when she is 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 reveals itself as a twisted case when the White House receives a ransom note along with the First Lady's finger.

Very good read by a great writing team. Enjoyed the book and was happy with ending. Writers always end the book with possibilities for future adventures??? I would sure hate to be the real life Chief of Staff for any President. Too often authors portray them as evil power hungry villains.

I enjoyed the book - but do not like that point of view... it distracted me as it did in the Conners book.

I love reading James Patterson books written in conjunction with another author as the plot is always full of twists and turn. Didn’t have the first inclination of of who was behind this mystery and that’s as it should be when reading a thriller. Fast paced and hard to put down as always.

This is a fast-paced novel that never slows down. The characters, the plot, the settings, all mesh to create an intriguing, enjoyable read. I'm a James Patterson reader, and I think this book is one of his best.
