One super read. Spoiler alert.
This one starts with helicopter a trip to Martha's Vineyard. To Chilmark House which is on the Southwest part of Martha's Vineyard. The man in the helicopter owns the house which is being used by the POTUS.
On arrival the man is escorted through security and meets with the POTUS. He and the POTUS were at Harvard twenty five years ago. The man, knows the POTUS quite well. He has also been assisting him with his belief that he can serve another term. His third or fourth. The CIC thinks this man, John Morgan, is working with him. Nothing could be further from the truth. Morgan will be telling his group, the Loyal Nine exactly what's going on and what he expects will happen. The Brahmin Nine are indeed a force to be reckoned with.
In the Ukraine an ex US Navy SEAL is meeting with a man named Biletsky who runs the anti Russian faction of the country. Biletsky isn't a trusting sort and the SEAL, call sign Nomad, knows it will take some time to convince him to go along with the plan. A plan that will work to perfection.
At the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, MA, Professor Henry Winthrop Sargent IV is teaching the last class of the semester. Sargent is also one of the Loyal Nine as is his brother Nomad. He and his brother Steve are the godson's of John Morgan.
Donald Quinn, is also part of the Loyal Nine served a sentence for another. A fact that has him living on easy street right now. Quinn is a man with the accounting know how to make any one believe anything he wants them to. He's also a member of the Loyal Nine.
So begins one damned fine read.
