A President's affair to remember soon becomes a nightmare he wishes he could forget in James Patterson's gripping new stand-alone thriller.
As he steps out of his hotel in Atlanta with the love of his life by his side, the last thing President Tucker expects is to be greeted by the flashing cameras of the media. Or for his affair to be revealed to the world, just two weeks before the public was expected to vote him in for a second term as leader of the Free World. The President must act quickly to stop the scandal from spiralling out of control. But not before he figures out how to keep the First Lady on his side.

Grace Tucker, however, has other plans. Mortified, betrayed and deeply hurt, she heads for a safe haven outside the capital. Yet not long after she arrives, her security details loses all trace of her. The First Lady is missing - and the President must find her, before all hell breaks loose.

Agent Sally Grissom of the Secret Service is tasked with leading a covert mission to bring the First Lady back to Washington D.C., before the media catches wind of her disappearance. But as the trail runs cold, she can't help feeling that she's being watched. Someone else is searching for Grace Tucker. And if Agent Grissom doesn't find her first, the First Lady might not be alive when she does...
