Book Details

Billionaire playboy, John Carlisle, fulfilled his ambition in becoming the President of the United States. He believed he could negotiate political gains as he did successfully in the business world. But he finds dealing with five-hundred-thirty-five congressmen frustrating, a roadblock in his desire to create a legacy as the greatest president in the country’s history.

Carlisle befriends Vladimir Petroff, dictator of Russia, fulfilling a campaign promise to develop greater cooperation between the two super powers. When invited by Petroff to Russia, the shrewd former head of the KGB, provides the President with sexual pleasures, playing upon the weakness of his counterpart.

Petroff threatened to release video and photos of the President’s indiscretion. Carlisle finds himself in a compromising position, either cooperating with the Russian dictator…or resigning in disgrace.

Carlisle is convinced by Petroff, that he can become the sovereign leader of the United States by disbanding Congress, the Supreme Court, and controlling the armed forces through subversive groups developed from a network of spies, reaching deep into the political structure of the United States. Carlisle is faced with choosing to lead in the destruction of democracy and becoming supreme leader, or admitting his fall from grace to the American people.
