Overview

The secret terrorist organization that came within a heartbeat of installing its agent as President of the United States in Executive Actions is back with a new—and deadlier—plot to destabilize the U.S. government. It all begins with what appears to be a simple mugging and murder of a female White House staffer. Secret Service agent Scott Roarke discovers the truth: that the murder was committed by his secret nemesis, the mysterious assassin who had managed to always stay one step ahead of him during the presidential campaign. This time Roarke has found clues about the assassin's past that give him the tools he needs to hunt the hunter, but the clues can only go so far. Roarke needs all his skill, and a huge amount of luck as well, if he's going to catch his quarry.

Editorial Reviews

Author - Larry Bond
Executive Treason is as topical as tomorrow's Internet blog ... fast-paced, with vivid characters and a plot right off the front pages. Surprises you on every page. A winner.
Author - Dale Brown
Intricate, taut, and completely mesmerizing, Gary Grossman's thriller Executive Treason is a hit! Grossman expertly blends together globe-spanning locations, well-researched technology, finely crafted narrative, and intriguing characters to create a virtuoso tale. Highly recommended.
Author - Gary Goldman
More chilling than science fiction. Gary Grossman shows how the media itself can become a weapon of mass destruction. You'll never listen to talk radio again without a shiver going down your spine.
