Slow start but gained momentum and became more interesting when the President, his wife and family became involved.
Gave you a feeling for the President's busy life, activity in the White House and presidential security.
The cause of the predicament, maybe a tad to inventive, but it ties the story together, and the ending is realistic. Violence is well described. I enjoyed the book and the included detail.
