Summary
Framed and on the run for his life, a former Secret Service agent discovers how far some men will go to grasp the highest office in the land in this electrifying tale from the author of The Night Agent?a propulsive political thriller reminiscent of the best early Baldacci and Grisham novels. As a Secret Service agent, Nick Averose spent a decade protecting the most powerful men and women in America and developed a unique gift: the ability to think like an assassin. Now, he uses that skill in a little-known but crucial job. As a "red teamer," he poses as a threat, testing the security around our highest officials to find vulnerabilities?before our enemies can. He is a mock killer, capable of slipping past even the best defenses. His latest assignment is to assess the security surrounding the former CIA director at his DC area home. When Nick enters the man's study, the home's inner sanctum, he finds the man alone and unconscious. Someone else has been here?someone who attacked the chief and left him for dead, just moments before. Desperately attempting to save the man's life, he contaminates the crime scene. Now, investigators believe Nick is somehow involved. Nick knows he's the perfect scapegoat. But who is framing him, and why? To clear his name, he must find the truth?a search that leads to a nefarious conspiracy whose roots stretch back decades. The prize is the most powerful position in the world: the Oval Office. To save himself and the people he loves, Nick must stop the men who rule Washington before they bury him along with their secrets
