FICTION / Political
When Dutch Laker, a man with strong ties to the Mafia and a connection to the Russian government, becomes president of the United States, a string of catastrophic actions follows. Laker withdraws the country from the Paris Agreement, ensuring further damage from climate change; withdraws from a nuclear agreement with Iran, creating a serious risk of nuclear war between that country and Israel; and orders the assassinations of two members of his cabinet who oppose him.
Linda Blaine – code name "Sapphire" – was one of the most accomplished intelligence agents of the Cold War. Now semi-retired, Linda is called back into action to lead a coalition headed by the vice president to oppose Laker and save the country.
Retired U.S. Ambassador Thomas Graham has created compelling characters and carefully crafted a political tale that includes rogue military, domestic rebellion, and intense intra-governmental struggles – all leading to impeachment hearings and a final confrontation with a corrupt and dangerous president.
"Tom Graham is a consummate Washington insider, with many years' experience as an ambassador and arms negotiator shedding light while fighting off the dark side. No one is better positioned to tell a thrilling tale of political and international intrigue. Highly recommended."
—Richard Rhodes, Pulitzer Prize Winner for
The Making of the Atomic Bomb
