Jack Swyteck gets caught in a dangerous web of intrigue and murder at
the top levels of the United States government in his most high-profile
and disturbing case yet.
Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck guards his own family
secrets closely, after his father's two terms as Florida's governor
made some personal rifts public. Things between the two men are finally
better, and whenever Harry Swyteck asks for Jack's help he gets it.
Suddenly, Harry needs it more than ever before.
When Harry's friend, the vice president of the United States, goes
hunting for alligators in the Everglades and winds up dead, the
president positions Harry to be his new VP. Harry immediately asks Jack
to be his lawyer. The prestige that comes from the job turns lethal,
however, when Jack finds himself at the heart of a complicated cover-up
that spans nearly fifty years and the globe. Before hostages can be
released, an old secret must be revealed, one that could threaten the
life of the president of the United States himself.
