Overview

While visiting a mental institution in upstate New York, a Catholic priest encounters a strange patient by the name of Jude Thaddeus. For some unknown reason Jude has been incarcerated and heavily sedated for many years. In a brief encounter with Father Mulrooney, Jude secretly passes an ingeniously disguised hand written manuscript. This political thriller reveals the greatest conspiracy in American history. Jude a former Wall Street power broker and a potential grandmaster had the chess skill and financial backing to set in motion an intricately crafted scheme, to fulfill the life long presidential dream of Nelson Rockefeller. The key to Jude's strategy was an amendment to the U.S. constitution. Also included in this captivating saga were manipulated elections, the oil crises, the Watergate setup, and other true historical events. This fascinating narrative seamlessly weaves fact with fiction. From the opening page to the final line, this is a storyteller's novel. Is this the imagination of a lunatic, or did this really happen? That's what the reader is left to ponder.

    Most amazing conspiracy in American History

    This entertaining tale begins with Father Malrooney who on a third visit to Fairview Hospital for the Criminally insane is given a tissue box that contains a neatly folded manuscript - Jude's story. Jude Thaddeus was more than just an orphan. He was a man with high aspirations, intelligent, and extremely cunning within the business world. His path an extraordinary one, and one that would lead him to great men such as: Henry Kissinger, Nelson Rockefeller, George Wallace and Richard Nixon then to tango with wealthy organizations such as OPEC and scandals like Watergate. His cool, calm demeanor a plus in his strategic plan to obtain 10 million dollars! With careful manipulation - the game is on. Jude's sights are on the Presidency, although after years of preparation, something goes wrong. The characters are vividly depicted, to the point that you become emotionally involved with them. Jude is certainly a fantastic and fascinating character.
