Caught in a game of chess he didn’t know he was playing until it was too late, the President makes the only move he can, plunging Washington and the nation into chaos. Stunned and reeling, Vice President David Kendall takes the oath of office and tries to heal a nation in mourning. But what the new president doesn’t realize is that things in the White House aren’t always what they appear to be, and sometimes what looks like the best option may turn out to be the worst. When one fatal decision triggers consequences he never envisioned, President Kendall finds himself caught up in the same game that cost his predecessor his life.

Although there was nothing he could have done, Secret Service Agent Matthew Richter is haunted by the death of the man he had vowed to protect. When his girlfriend leaves him and his boss tells him that his job is on the line, he thinks his life cannot get any worse. He soon realizes how wrong he is when he finds himself fighting to save another president from the deadly forces that he has unwittingly unleashed.

One man holds the reins of power. One man vows to protect him. One man vows to destroy him.

About L.D. Beyer
L.D. Beyer

I spent over twenty-five years in the corporate world, climbing the proverbial corporate ladder, so to speak. This meant a lot of time away from my family, extensive travel, a half-dozen relocations, and the opportunity to live and work in Mexico for several years. I’ve had the desire to write for a long time but my job left little room for much else. In 2011, I decided it was time for a change—I was tired of moving every few years, I wanted to spend more time with my family and I wanted to chase my dream of being a writer.

I am an avid reader, particularly of thrillers by such authors as David Baldacci, Steve Berry, Brad Thor and Vince Flynn. For me, a few hours with a good book is far more enjoyable than a few hours in front of the TV. I live in Michigan with my wife, three children and enjoy cooking, hiking, biking, working out and fixing just about anything that breaks in the house. Three kids, a dog and an aging house mean I spend a lot of time fixing things.
