T he first thing to note is that the title is fake news. Thanks to a helpful slab of exposition by a geek halfway through, we know that this is really, really serious. Also, the Russians might be behind it, and Duncan might have a mole in his own ranks. So out of the White House the president sneaks: he disguises himself using makeup with the help of a famous actress friend as you do , before meeting someone who might be able to help at a baseball game. Luckily, he is being followed by the pros. The president is a super-decent bipartisan hero, an ideal mash-up between John McCain and, um, Bill Clinton. Like Clinton, Duncan met his wife at law school and has one adult daughter; unlike Clinton, his wife is tragically deceased and he spent time as a prisoner of war in Iraq.
The book opens with a charged scene in which President Jonathan Duncan is participating in a mock hearing to prepare for a congressional inquiry investigating the botched attempt to capture a terrorist. When the president loses his temper, he vindicates the advisers who have cautioned him not to appear before the actual committee. After kissing the photo, he enters the subterranean tunnels beneath the White House, emerges in an underground Treasury Department parking garage, gets behind the wheel of a sedan and drives himself first to the apartment of an old friend — who helps him with a disguise — and then to a Capitol Hill bar to meet his daughter. The young man earns instant credibility with the president when the two are nearly gunned down. Bach, so named for her devotion to the classical music constantly playing in her earbuds, is an assassin. She has assassinated generals, activists, politicians and businessmen.
