Her codename is Kingfisher. Her mission: to seduce and marry the most powerful man in the world.

October 2016: In America, the election is a few weeks away.

Journalist Grace Elliot has just landed a scoop that she believes will make her career.

A porn-star is willing to talk about her affair with the man some hope and many fear will become the next president of the United States.

But no one will touch it. Instead, Grace is sent to Europe where she discovers a story so big, so explosive that it could decide the American election and launch a new Cold War.

If she can stay alive long enough to tell it…

Spies, murder, and one of the biggest conspiracy theories of our time set the stage for this immersive thriller.

Reviews

This gulp-in-one-go conspiracy thriller… has some pretty scary parallels to recent events (in fact, it’s written anonymously because the author based the story on real information from a protected source – oo-er!)
