The Metro police are on the case when Putnam Shady steps forward and identifies the third victim as a friend. Authority averse, Putnam gives the cops only bare bones information - but he tells Margaret "Sweetie" Sweeney that he thinks he will be the next victim.
The reason, he explains, is quite simple. There are two plans afoot to seize control of the federal government. At the center of one plan is the speaker of the House of Representatives. The group behind the other plan consisted of Putnam and his three dead colleagues.
Sweetie vows to protect Putnam. She enlists Jim McGill, the president's henchman, to find out who is behind the murders. But then McGill's whole world is turned upside down. His son, Kenny, is diagnosed with leukemia.
President Patricia Grant's life is only slightly less tumultuous. Her enemies force her to leave the Republican Party. Erna Godfrey implicates her husband, Reverend Burke Godfrey, in the killing of Patti's first husband, Andrew Hudson Grant. But Reverend Godfrey refuses to go down without a fight.
Amidst the turmoil, Welborn Yates and Kira Fahey schedule their marriage - and inevitably have to deal with wedding crashers.

The third book in the McGill series doesn't disappoint! I thought this was a great continuation of the characters and I loved how Flynn keeps past plot points relevant to the story, like that of Welborn Yates and the car accident that he was in years prior. I also liked how Flynn used real political events in the past to highlight various parts of his plot. I thought the personal twist in the McGill family was an emotional ride and the cliffhanger at the end leaves me impatient for the fourth novel to be published. Yet another fantastic, involved read from Flynn, I'd highly recommend the other McGill books, The President's Henchman and The Hangman's Companion, as well as all of the other books by Flynn.
