This book is about the first female president, and those that oppose her are plotting to silence her forever. The only man that can protect her has six days to solve the mystery. This is a political thriller, that moved fast and furious!

Only one man knows that the first woman president of the United States is scheduled for assasination and he only has six days to uncover the plot and those behind it. Not knowing who he can trust he is forced to act alone. A good conspiracy thriller by a master storyteller.

This is the 3rd book of the Kane and Abel series. Shall We Tell the President? is a 1977 novel by English author Jeffrey Archer. A revised edition was published in 1986. In the first edition, a plot to kill the President of the United States, Edward Kennedy, is foiled by a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent working with the head of the FBI. A love story complicates the plot. The book includes descriptive details of official Washington, for which the author lists sources. After the success of Kane and Abel and The Prodigal Daughter, in the revised edition Archer replaced Kennedy with the fictional character of Florentyna Kane, and original Vice President Dale Bumpers with the real-life Senator Bill Bradley of New Jersey. The author makes frequent references to William Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar.
I found this book a little weaker than the first 2 in the series. My only real complaint is its lack of major plot twists which I've come to expect from Archer's novels. The ending does have a surprise twist which was rather enjoyable. I look forward to reading more books by Archer in the very near future. I highly recommend this book to those who love political thrillers.

I just discovered this author recently who has been around for years. He's an incredible story teller and so far I haven't been able to put down one of his books. This one was the same. An engaging story of intrigue and suspense.
