I recently read "The President's Henchman" also by Joseph Flynn. After finishing that story, I decided to look for more by this author. This one was also very good, although there was more gun waving and more people wounded and killed by those guns than I'd prefer. Still, if you like political intrigue, try "The Next President." I think it'll keep you engaged and guessing to the end.

I have read a few of Flynn's books but this one tops them all by a long shot. From the very first page Flynn gets you hooked. Who's the cat and who's the mouse? J.D. Cade is a great character and so are the others. If you like mystery or suspense, maybe even a thriller then definately pick up Joseph Flynn's The Next President!

Joseph Flynn, the author of DIGGER, delivers another winner with his newest book, THE NEXT PRESIDENT. This is the story of J.D. Cade, a former sniper and assassin for the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. After thirty years of trying to live a good life and raise a family, Cade¿s past has finally caught up with him. Certain members of the United States government want to use Cade¿s ability as a sniper to assassinate Senator F.D. Rawley, an African-American of integrity and determination who may very well become the first black president. To coerce Cade into committing murder, the life of his twenty-one-year old son, Evan, is threatened. The desire to protect his family is enough to propel Cade down a path he¿d rather not take. His first attempt on Rawley¿s life comes close to succeeding, but an unexpected incident forces Cade to devise another plan that will bring him much nearer to the presidential candidate. He intends on infiltrating Rawley¿s presidential campaign by contributing a large sum of money, thereby getting his foot in the door with the possibility of personally meeting the candidate. What Cade doesn¿t anticipate is that he will grow to admire and respect F.D. Rawley, finding himself torn between wanting to protect his son and wanting to see this great man become the next president of the United States. While Cade attempts to figure out a way to save his family without assassinating the good Senator, his son, Evan, is back home in Illinois trying to stay alive long enough to find out why he is being framed for a murder he didn¿t commit¿a murder that could once again start up a bloody feud between two families. When the moment finally arrives, will Cade be able to kill Senator Rawley, or will he be able to find a way out of his deadly dilemma and save the day? In THE NEXT PRESIDENT, Mr. Flynn has crafted a fascinating multi-layered novel that has several plots going at the same time and keeps the reader guessing right up to the end. The pace is fast and suspenseful, and there are a number of secondary characters that prove to be almost as interesting as the main ones. There¿s Daniel DeVito, the Secret Service agent who¿s instincts tell him that Cade is up to no good and is determined to be there when he makes a wrong move and Blair McCray, a police officer, who¿s father was murdered by J.D. Cade over thirty years before and now thinks that Evan may have killed his cousin. One theme that definitely stands out through the entire novel is the importance of family. When the people who are your blood are threatened, a person will do whatever it takes to protect them. This can lead to a fifty-year feud between two families, the assassination of a United States Senator, and a presidential candidate putting his own life on the line to save his grandson. THE NEXT PRESIDENT proves itself to be a worthy follow up to Joseph Flynn¿s second novel, DIGGER. This is an author who has the beginning of fabulous career ahead of him, and I certainly look forward to his next novel when it comes out. One last note, Mr. Flynn¿s first novel, THE CONCRET INQUISITION, is being reprinted this fall by Bantam Books. Be on the lookout for it!

I have found my new favorite author. Flynn makes his characters come to life-the good, the bad and the ugly. His tale is filled with many turns, but I never got lost following his roads. His protagonist, J. D. Cade, captured my interest and my heart from the first page. I also found the Presidential candidate very interesting. Anyone who enjoys intrigue, politics, love stories, detective stories, murder and mayhem will not be able to put this down. I am looking forward to going back and reading his last book, DIGGER.
