A riveting political thriller from the author of Incognegro (“Don't miss it!”-Cornell West) and Dark Rain (“Masterful” — Miami Herald)
In the week leading up to a major campaign speech, the Secret Service discovers that an extremist militia group is plotting to assassinate America’s second African American President. The best chance to advert this crisis is to infiltrate the group using an ex-Special Forces war hero turned conservative media pundit named Ted Akers. While Aker’s politics make him a hero to the right-wing fringe and no friend to the current Administration, he takes the assignment and races to stop a President from dying and a country from being ripped apart.
Mat Johnson has crafted both an entertaining thriller and a sobering look at America’s racial and political divides.
