About the Book

In the early morning, Vice President-Elect Tom Ainsley answers the phone and is told something he never thought he’d hear: His running mate, and the top of the ticket, Jim Washburn, has died in a plane crash. Now, he must be prepared to lead a nation.

While the man Washburn defeated in the election, Senator Tom Falkner, wonders whether there is still a way to become the commander in chief, Ainsley sees an opportunity for compromise. But the new president-elect turns up dead before he gets the chance to offer the senator the chance to become vice president.

Now, a divided Congress, a partisan Supreme Court, and power brokers behind the scenes all want their say in how the country should move forward. They have no idea that lurking in the background is a religious fanatic who believes that America’s troubles are the will of Allah. Now just might be the perfect time to go to war.

Find out if the Constitution would hold up in an unfathomable crisis and whether partisan politicians would come together to combat a deadly threat in There Is No President.
