Eight years ago, Addie Webster was the victim of the most notorious kidnapping of the decade. Addie vanished-and her high-profile parents were forced to move on.
Mark Webster is now president of the United States, fighting to keep the oval office after a tumultuous first term. Then the unthinkable happens: the president's daughter resurfaces. Addie is brought back into her family's fold, but who is this sixteen-year-old girl with a quiet, burning intelligence now living in the White House? There are those in the president's political circle who find her timely return suspicious.
When a national security advisor approaches Darrow Fergusson, Addie's childhood best friend and the son of the president's chief of staff, he doesn't know what to think. How could the girl he's missed for all these years be a threat to national security? Still, at the risk of having his own secrets exposed, Darrow agrees to spy on Addie.
He soon realizes that his old friend is much more than the traumatized victim of a sick political fringe group. Addie has come home with a mission...but will she choose to complete it?

I loved the story and character development. I found this book to be surprisingly good, even though I do not like this genre much. My only complaint is that the author takes too long building up to the climax. The book got boring just before I reached the climax. I would definately reccomend this book to anyone into mystery. It is a truman nominee for a good reason. My foavorite mystery book so far.
Couldn't put it down. Hope they follow up!
I could not put this book down. I really hope there is a followup and even a movie or television show. What a great plot! I was sad to have it end.
