Publisher's Summary

The pulse-pounding new thriller from Richard & Judy and Zoe Ball Book Club author Tony Kent.

The enemies aren’t at the gate – they’re already inside.

When controversial US presidential candidate Dale Victor is killed in a plane explosion, along with hundreds of other passengers, it appears to be a clear-cut case of terrorism. The suspect has even confessed to the bombing. But as criminal barrister Michael Devlin is about to discover, everything is not as it seems.

Also suspecting there are other forces at work, intelligence agent Joe Dempsey is driven to investigate. Who would have wanted Victor out of the way – and would commit mass murder to do it? As the evidence begins to mount, everything seems to point to the very top of the US government. And now someone is determined to stop Dempsey and Devlin from discovering the truth. At any cost.

With countless more lives on the line, together Dempsey and Devlin must find a way to prove who’s really pulling the strings and free the White House from the deadly grip that has taken hold of power.

Great story, but

The narrator puts a lot of effort into all the different accents which distracts from the story. His American accents are truly awful. Black Hork helicopter? He does Scottish, Northern and Southern Irish, not to mention London English though not Cockney. I wish he would drop all the imitations and focus on the story which he reads well.
