EXECUTIVE TREASON, Gary Grossman’s “political reality thriller” follow-up to EXECUTIVE ACTIONS, finds Secret Service agent Scott Roarke back on the trail of the elusive assassin who tried to take down the U.S. presidency. The globe-trotting novel explodes with surprises from the Oval Office to the cockpit of Air Force One, right to middle America and the broadcast studios of an immensely powerful national talk radio host with political motives of his own.
With the president’s life in jeopardy and his succession in question, Roarke discovers that his former nemesis, a mysterious assassin who had managed to evade him during the recent presidential campaign, is deeply involved. This time, Roarke gathers a number of clues about the assassin’s past that give him the tools he needs to track down the hunter, but clues can only go so far. Roarke must use all his skill and cunning, as well as a great deal of luck, if he’s going to catch his quarry. (Diversion Books, $2.99)
