Overview

Als der Schuss faellt, haelt Amerika den Atem an. Der Kandidat fuer das hoechste Staatsamt stirbt vor den Augen von Freund und Feind: Hoffnungstraeger und Sonnyboy James Kilcannon ist tot. Zwoelf Jahre spaeter: Ein Schuss, ein Schrei aus 5000 Kehlen, eine Blutlache—immer wieder der gleiche Traum. Kerry Kilcannon quaelt die Erinnerung an den Tod des Bruders. Aber er steht im Begriff, James' Traum zu verwirklichen. Als Kandidat der demokratischen Partei ist sein Einzug ins Weisse Haus zum Greifen nah. Es scheint, als gelaenge ihm vor den Augen der ewig lauernden Medien die Balance zwischen Ueberzeugung und Taktik, zwischen Moral und Macht.
Der Countdown laeuft im Medienstaat Kalifornien, und hier holen Kerrys Gegner zum entscheidenden Schlag aus: Sie spielen der Presse ein dunkles Geheimnis aus seiner Vergangenheit zu. Im Zentrum dieser Killerstory steht die NBC-Reporterin Lara Costello, Kerrys grosse Liebe, die nach einer heimlichen Abtreibung aus seinem Leben geflohen ist. Werden die Medien die Liebe und das Leid zweier Menschen einer reisserischen Story willen ans Licht zerren? Muss Kerry sich zwischen Wahrheit und Waehlerstimmen, zwischen Glueck und Macht entscheiden?
Der Kandidat ist ein Roman aus einem Land, das von politischen Intrigen gebeutelt wird, dessen Medien vor nichts zurueckschrecken und dessen Buerger auf der Suche nach der Integritaet des Kandidaten vom Scheinwerferlicht geblendet werden.

In the high-stakes, high-pressure world of presidential politics where predators carry microphones and one misstep can savage a lifetime of achievement, Kerry Kilcannon is the rarest player of all. Kilcannon believes he can make the system work. And he just may die trying. Driven by the violent nightmare of his childhood, fueled by forces that few could understand, and burdened by secrets no one must know, Kilcannon is running for President--and entering the crucial battleground of California with seven days to go. But for Kilcannon, there are hurdles that his courage, charisma, and compassion may not overcome: the network correspondent he still loves; the reporter bent on their exposure; the rival who'll do anything to win; and the fanatic who believes that he must murder Kilcannon to protect the right to life.
