PRESIDENT’S DAY: A Political Thriller ~Seth Margolis

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

PRESIDENT’S DAY is a great thriller with political overtones and high stakes manipulations, written well before the current political/election cycle but it makes one think about the craziness that recently happened here and how well it could have been domestic rather than Russian activity.

Julian Mellow is so wealthy he gets everything he wants including some rare masterpiece paintings which he has hidden away so that no one will know he has them – his secret stash.  His only son has been killed during the take over of a small African country and he now wants revenge and control of that country and he is buying his way.   This desire has him working all the angles on controlling an upcoming American Presidential Election to assist his efforts in taking revenge on the small nation that has been thrown into extreme poverty by the new dictator.

He truly only has one problem to overcome and that is his former assistant Zach Springer, who he set up to take the blame in one of his manipulation schema.  Except Zach knows exactly what Mellow is doing both in his business and in the election engineering and he keeps figuring out more and more – Hold ON!  He cannot convince any one in authority of what he knows and how to warn them of what is happening.  He ends up injured and in prison and yet he still has another ace up his sleeve.   I wonder if there will be a sequel?

Just what I needed to read right now something fast paced and exciting, finding some resolution as I wonder what will happen with the racist chaos and destruction of our government in current times.  Will our President be found out in time and then will we be able to regain control of our rights and laws to then protect ourselves from billionaire despots?  Will we all be shot or imprisoned?  It is quite the read.

TLC Book Tours sent me a copy of this book for review – actually I have to say that something happened with my copy and I knew it was coming up on the schedule so I purchased by own copy to be able to write my thoughts in time.
