Sometimes you're settling into a thriller and you think: why hasn't someone thought of this before? Although the idea of the First Lady divorcing her husband while he's still the president may have seemed farfetched a few years back, it's entirely plausible these days, and it's a little surprising that it has taken this long for someone to write a novel about it. And a fine novel it is, too: exciting, smart, deceptive. How would the wife of the U.S. president go about getting a divorce, anyway? That's what Texas attorney David Owens needs to find out after he's hired to act as her lawyer. Owens is instantly propelled into the top levels of American government and into a plot of devilish complexity that threatens to ruin his career, if it doesn't kill him first. Brandon, the author of 11 previous novels, sets us up to expect a hairraising finale, and he delivers the goods. An expert blend of intelligent plotting and adrenalinepumping suspense.
