QUICK NOTE: This is a guest review written by my Granny. A publisher sent me this book, but I didn't think I would like it so my Granny offered to review it. So here is her review!


Bruised by years of disappointments, political advisor Maggie Costello is finally working for a leader she can believe in. She, along with the rest of America, has put her trust in President Stephen Baker, believing he can make the world a better place.
But suddenly an enemy surfaces: a man called Vic Forbes reveals first one scandal about the new president, and then another. He threatens a third revelation – one that will destroy Baker entirely.
When Forbes is found dead, Maggie is thrown into turmoil. Could the leader she idolizes have been behind Forbes’s murder? Has she been duped by his message of change and hope? Who is the real Stephen Baker?
On the trail of the truth, Maggie is led into the roots of a massive conspiracy that reaches back into history - and goes right to the heart of the US establishment...

I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting, intriguing, unputdownable....I just loved it! Although it is fiction., it is perfectly credible and it was very exciting so it kept me on the edge of my seat.

It was very, very good - perhaps not for children; maybe adults and older teenagers. It was definitely one of the best books I've ever read; I give it a rating of 5/5. I recommend it!
