Hot on the heels of the latest presidential news comes this hilarious account of the Presidential election as it might have been. Best-selling nonfiction writer William Norris turns his hand to comedy with a Mafia boss trying every trick in the book to seize the Presidency of the United States. The story is set--where else?--in Florida. Which just goes to show that authors can sometimes be more prescient than they realize. Can you say kidnap? Doppleganger? Just who is the Vice President anyway? Does the future of a nation rest on one man's birthmark? In this entertaining story, William Norris has brought together a colorful cast of characters and mixed them together. The result? A cocktail of sometimes lethal, always funny, episodes laced with wit and humor to keep you laughing until the end. William's timing is impeccable and his humorous writing is at times reminiscent of the good old British farce.

About the Author
After turning freelance in 1980, Norris moved to the United States where he worked under contract for The Times and other publications for 13 years.
He became Associate Director of the PressWise Trust (a British media ethics charity) in 1997, in which post he counseled young journalists and promoted the cause of journalistic ethics. The latter, he said, was rather like preaching the virtues of continence to a shipload of sex-starved sailors. Six years ago he moved to the South of France, where he lives with his wife, Betty, two cats, and two exhausting dogs.
