STAR SPANGLED VILLAINS is a novel of mystery and roller-coaster suspense. President-elect Paul Bulgrando boldly moves the inaugural events to Hearst Castle in California. But instead of triumph and adulation, he's assailed with skeletons, arson, murder, blackmail and a family secret so astounding it could topple his presidency. A scathing political allegory of vanity, deceit and murder, Paul's fate is out of his control. Will he remain president? Or will it be necessary to impeach him, or invoke the 25th amendment throwing the nation into political turmoil.
