President James Whitcomb had been a Marine helicopter pilot who was shot down in Iraq. After leaving the service, he attended law school and joined a Wall Street law firm. He was a popular two term New Jersey governor and successfully ran for president when President Trump unexpectedly announced that he would not seek a second term.
Denis Lenihan is Whitcomb's chief of staff and best friend. He recently determined that Whitcomb should begin his reelection campaign by making a series of "road shows," speaking directly to friendly crowds in the heartland. Whitcomb seconded his chief of staff's idea. His only condition was that Phoenix be one of the road show stops. Lenihan did not bother to argue.
Jake Rosen is making plans of his own. He has obtained information about Whitcomb which, if true, will enable Rosen to control the occupant of the White House. Rosen sees this as an opportunity to remake America, to drag it out of the dark, bottomless pit into which it had fallen with the election of Donald Trump.
Jamal McDaniels is a Special Agent of the United States Secret Service assigned to the Presidential Protection Division. The Secret Service has learned that a little known domestic terrorist organization located in the West, possibly in Phoenix itself, has targeted POTUS. McDaniels has been sent to Phoenix to disrupt the terrorists' conspiracy. But POTUS's visit is in a few short weeks. Will the Secret Service have enough time to complete its mission?
EXECUTIVE TARGET is a modern day political satire. Good guys and bad guys (and gals) operate across the country, seeking to have their side win it all. The action takes place in the White House, the newsroom of a media giant and the desert. The reader will be privy to high-level White House meetings, conspirators' plans and who the winners and losers are in this political roller coaster ride.
