In James Patterson's new stand-alone thriller, one secret can bring down a government when the President's affair to remember becomes a nightmare he wishes he could forget.

Sally Grissom is a top secret service agent in charge of the Presidential Protection team. She knows that something is amiss when she is summoned to a private meeting with the President and his Chief of Staff without any witnesses. But she couldn't have predicted that she'd be forced to take on an investigation surrounding the mysterious disappearance of the First Lady--with strict orders to keep it a secret.

The First Lady's absence comes in the wake of the scandalous, public revelation of the president's affair, so at first it seems as though she is simply cutting off all contact as she recuperates at a horse farm in Virginia. What begins as an innocent respite quickly reveals itself as a twisted case when the White House receives a ransom note along with the First Lady's finger.

I loved this book! It kept me engrossed and even though I was able to figure out who was behind certain actions before it was revealed in the story, it was still a very good read!

Great book Love the story. The first lady's husband, the President was having a affair, so she had the news channels be at his hotel when he came out. His chief of staff wanted to keep it a secret when she disappeared. But she planned it, even had her finger cut off to send to the White House with a ransom note of 100 million dollars. The chief of staff paid it, which she had planned. The secret service was the one who found her. She resigned and went to work for the first lady in her Charity foundation. The chief of staff was fired and later murdered by his hired killer that he hired to kill first lady. The president was left all alone as his mistress left him too.
