Shall We Tell the President? by Jeffrey Archer

The Story [Goodreads.Com]
After decades of struggle, sacrifice, and personal tragedy, Florentyna Kane has finally attained her goal--the presidency of the United States. Yet even as she gives her inaugural speech, those who oppose her are plotting to silence her forever. Only one man knows when the assassins will strike, and even he doesn't know where, how, or most importantly, who they are. He has only six days to track down the senator at the heart of the cold-blooded conspiracy. Six days in which he can waste no time, leave no trail, and trust no one. One wrong word, one false move, and both a nation and a dream will crumble.

My View
Archer achieved what most authors dream about: writing a page-turner. The story and suspense flowed naturally through every page, until I'd finished the book and hardly realized it. I enjoyed the men-slaughtering, car crashing, assassinate plotting, and some romance . All seemed so real to me. It was like watching a movie. A live action! It was unbelievable that the agents can keep such a fatal secret (assassination)  from the President. Before I realized it, I keep asking the same question until last page. "Shall We Tell the President?"

This is not my typical kind of read - being adult and being of a more contemporary setting, but it does sound intriguing and definitely a book that is telling of our time in politics. It's also nice to read a book that really plays out like a movie - filled with action and adventure. I felt that way when I read the first in the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.

Jeffrey Archer is one of my favorite thriller-type writers. His A Prisoner of Birth was brilliantly written and this looks fantastic as well.

Thanks for stopping by CJ! It's great to meet you and I look forward to seeing more of your reviews.
