Tipped off by a mysterious Lebanese banker, the U.S. mounts a furious effort to thwart the operation. But, it becomes eerily apparent that the President's first priority is to terminate the banker at all costs. Hastings, the top American intelligence official, acting against orders, desperately attempts to keep the banker alive long enough to understand the full dimensions of the treachery underway, culminating in the truth about the Prince and President dumped upon an unsuspecting electorate in the closing days of the election.
The Gambit's wild ride through scheming oil traders, unstable markets, political blackmail, desperation and greed produces an uncomfortable premise: to what extent has the conspiracy already occurred?

"Taking a look at recent headlines, The Gambit by Gary Nunnally, is a perfect fit. Oil prices soar then fall, pirates take over container ships and terrorism is on the rise. You would think that these are part of ordinary life but, imagine that it is all being orchestrated by a few powerful and wealthy individuals. Reading this thriller, I kept referring to recent news and thinking was this truth or fiction? Well written, but a bit wordy in places, Gary has an entertaining plot line that takes us to a world most do not know about and the few cunning and sinister characters that may truly be living there." - TopBookReviewers
