Description

From the master of suspense and political intrigue comes this hilarious and richly perceptive novel about a gifted politician with dangerous friends and a zipper problem.

John Fitzgerald Adams, known by the voters who love him as Jack, has good reason to believe he is the illegitimate son of John F. Kennedy. His goal is the same as that of any Kennedy: to reclaim the presidency and enjoy as many women as possible along the way.

Jack possesses an unerring political genius for charming voters and advancing his own interests, but he can't make it to the Oval Office without financial support. Luckily, his talents have been recognized by some radical Russians who are happy to invest heavily in his rise to power. As Jack marches toward the presidency, those who realize the truth about his sinister connections try to stop him--but will anyone believe them?

display_descriptionThe KGB grooms a charming young American to run for president Although in the mid-1940s no one had ever heard of JFK, Jack Adams's mother insisted her new son be christened John Fitzgerald. Years after his parents' death, Jack learns the reason for his name: a packet of photos showing his mother in bed with young John Kennedy. As a student at Columbia University, Jack demonstrates that he inherited more than JFK's good looks. His irresistible charisma and political instinct make him a natural campus leader, but he has his sights set on something bigger than the student council. Young Jack Adams wants to be president of the United States, and the Soviet Union is prepared to help. A KGB spy named Dmitri recruits Jack, promising him the presidency in exchange for treason. Dmitri guides Jack for decades, putting him in a position to become the largest intelligence coup in history-unless the candidate's libido derails him first.
