After having read most of John Patterson's work, I usually enjoy his books and with all the hype surrounding this book and despite the fact that I'm not a fan of Clinton, I decided to read it. Well I attempted to read it. To me it sounded like one of Clinton's speeches...all mish-mash. Not even Patterson could help him out. I do not recommend this book to fans of Patterson or anyone who loves to read. It was a waste of time...such a waste that I skipped thirty or more chapters because I knew who the bad girl was at the beginning. The president was not believable. The vice president was an imbecile and so was the protagonist.
