The bullet riddled campaign bus of senator Katherine Laforge is found on a lonely snow swept road near Charlestown New Hampshire. Who are the assassins behind this deadly attack of a presidential candidate? Who wants her dead? Has her unorthodox quest for peace between Iraq and the USA incensed her foreign policy adversaries to the point of killing her? Could the perpetrators of this attack be any of the thousands of accountants, Lawyers or IRS agents who fear and loathe Katherine's campaign pledge to replace Income tax with a simple national sales tax? Is her support and policies for the United States to end its reliance on foreign oil, incendiary enough for the billionaire oil cartel to silence her? Is she a victim of an Islamic militant's reprisal for her outspoken view on their Jihad? Or is this attack simply because Senator Katherine Laforge is now a clear and present danger to the age-old bastion of men at the helm of the United States?

This action packed novel is about Katherine Laforge (Kat), a modern day women, who is running for presidential office.

Hearne did a superb job of really making me question and truly wonder if the plots he brought to life in this novel are plausible. So, pick up your copy today and begin this suspense filled journey.

I do wish there were candidates out there like Senator Laforge. We’ve seen so much political mayhem in the last decade that a heroine of her stature would be a welcome change. The fact that she is a woman is just an added bonus in my eyes. The plot was concise and tight, the intrigue well drawn and realistic, and the characters believable. Katherine in particular touched me with her bravery and her refusal to back down from her beliefs. I felt such inspiration reading about a strong female character and especially in political fiction. I feel too few writers address this topic and it keeps us as a nation from moving forward to embrace women of substance as leaders. Here’s hoping this novel changes a few more minds. It’s time to consider other options.
I enjoyed this book, it was a very captivating read! It really makes you wonder about what is actually going on in the world of politics and government.

It was fascinating to follow such a thrilling presidential campaign for senator Katherine Laforge, she has my vote!
