This book is surprisingly good. Surprising because I am not familiar with the author and could not find any other books by him. It's like a rollercoaster. The story starts out a little slow, but once it gets going, hold on to your seat for a thrilling ride. It is a page-turner that is hard to put down. The main character is the President of the United States (POTUS) and he is definitely a man's man. There are some strong female characters in the book as well. I will keep my eye on this writer and I hope a sequel is in the works.
