Right out of the starting block like a horserace, the action begins when the U.S. President is confronted by a flock of newspaper reporters, cameras in hand, as he and the woman with whom we learn he's been having a secret affair are leaving a hotel trying their best to be discreet. And from there it continues and never lets up until the very last page. After the diabolical plot is revealed in the first 7 chapters, Sally Grissom, leader of the Presidential Protective Division and a lead character throughout the remaining chapters, ninety-one in all, enters on the scene. She then becomes the narrator in the first person in each of those chapters where she is a participant in the action which moves like a locomotive. What a great read, with lots of twists and turns, as James Patterson lives up to his well-established reputation (this time with the help of co-author Brendon Dubois) for giving his readers a book they will not want to put down until the final page is read.
