U.S. President Tyrone Bentley Trout has a problem, and it's not just with the Special Prosecutor. His exclusive Irish golf course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is falling victim to climate change. One of his greens ('The White House') is being flooded by sea water. He wants the Irish to build a wall, and he wants Ireland to pay for it.
This is a tale of rare snails, a kidnapped horse, Russian interference, a tenacious Special Prosecutor, three ex-wives, Osama Bin Laden, a frustrated assassin, low earth orbit reconnaissance, a Fatberg, two scheming political advisers, a Welsh eco warrior, Ireland's first female Taoiseach and a climactic golf match which might, at any point, become an 'hommage' to 'Goldfinger'. Any resemblance to current or former occupants of the West Wing is highly probable.

About the Author
Myles Dungan is an Irish historian and broadcaster with no previous convictions. As well as The Theft of the Irish Crown Jewels he has published numerous books on Irish and American history (How the Irish Won the West, Irish Voices from the Great War, The Captain and the King, Mr. Parnel's Rottweiler) which are probably of little interest to anyone reading The White House. Of somewhat more relevance here is his authorship of two tomes on golf, A Good Walk Spoiled: A Book of Golf Quotes and Preferred Lies: A Book of Golf Anecdotes. Both are now, mercifully, out of print. The White House is his first conscious and deliberate attempt to be even mildly amusing.
