"According to the D.C. cops, the fiery destruction of an upscale plastic surgery clinic and its staff is just business as usual. With the whole city on high alert because of the upcoming presidential inauguration, the Secret Service can afford to let it go. Retired agent Swamp Morgan pulls what appears to be a "firefly" case--until he digs deeper. Facts don't add up. A German man, the clinic's last client, has vanished. The only surviving nurse is almost killed. And a mysterious tape indicating an imminent threat against the government puts Morgan on full alert, but his handlers refuse to listen to his warnings. Morgan's in a race against time as the deadly pieces fall into place. Fighting the odds, he's got to shut down the brilliant plan to assassinate the incoming and outgoing presidents before America falls into total chaos--or die trying!"
I don't normally read abridged books and say that on my requestor conditions. However, I didn't notice that this one was abridged before I started. I'm glad, because I enjoyed it thoroughly. The story hung together and I was never left with that 'abridged' feeling that I had missed something. I highly recommend it!
