Secretary of State, Randall Tanner, was shocked when he read the
Top Secret file discovered by one of his Ambassadors that revealed
that the President was guilty of treason. After three agonizing
days he decided that there was no other solution: The President had
to die. Tanner initiated a plot to have President Ted Hoskins
assassinated in a way that would make his death look like an
accident. Fearing what she might know about the
President's activities, the plotters also killed
Hoskins' mistress, the Secretary of the Interior, Sarah
Brewster. For five years it looked like they had gotten away with
it, until Sarah's alcoholic husband found her diary
including the details of her affair with the President.
Broke, drunk and angry, the husband contacted an ex-CIA agent
turned international affairs writer to ghost-write a book spilling
all of Hoskins' dirty secrets, revelations that would
raise questions that the conspirators couldn't afford to
have asked. The killers quickly got rid of Sarah's
husband, but by then the diary had fallen into the hands of his
daughter, Allison, and the ghostwriter, Steve Grant.
Barely one step ahead of the killers, Steve and Allison
desperately search for Sarah's last hidden file that
contains the whole story about the President, a file they have to
find before the killers find them if they expect to have any hope
of staying alive.
