The role of the Presidency is complicated more than enough for Elizabeth Ashton without the added political burden of being the first woman elected to this high office in America. She is delighting her supporters and converting readily her critics when she goes missing while attending a fundraiser. The unfolding plot is a matter of survival—not only personal survival, but also hanging in the balance is the endurance of the Presidency and democracy in America. The missing President must be recovered—dead or alive.
About the author:
Writing this novel seemed simple enough at the start. You describe an event in American history that almost every citizen can see coming from a mile away: the election of the first woman President of the United States.
I did not want to write solely a political novel. During the year of writing, I was intrigued by elements of mystery, suspense and romance, with a little humor thrown in on the side to seduce the reader in the story.
The reader will become emotionally involved with the main characters through not only their interactions with each other, but the events that propel the main characters. Plot twists and turns are important in writing this kind of novel, and there are enough of them to satisfy even the most passionate reader with the final twist arriving late in the book.
