A heartbeat away?
My new Grove O'Rourke thriller, Mr. President, is here now. It's a short eBook available online at Barnes and Noble and Amazon. Mr. President is pure fiction … but worth reading before you vote.
What happens when greed collides with blind ambition? In this short story, available exclusively as an eBook, Grove O’Rourke discovers how far powerful adversaries will go to push their political agendas. The prize: the presidency of the United States.
Nobody else knows what Grove knows. He unearths secrets about his clients, some close to home and some smoldering in the stacks of a Harvard library. He can keep quiet, pander to whoever comes out on top, and keep his thirty pieces of silver. Or he can do the right thing, destroy his career, and trash his personal reputation. It’s lose-lose any way you look at it.
Who would have expected an unscheduled meeting to create this quandary? Grove was walking his dog, returning from Central Park. That’s when a professor from Harvard Business School rolled down the window of a black Lincoln Town Car and said, “Get in.”
What a ride. Grove thought his industry was tough. But in Mr. President, he learns that Wall Street is a nursery compared to the power corridors of Washington, DC.
