A crisis unlike any other... Like his many of his forbearers, President Jeremy Haines is weighed down by the solemn duties of his post. The threat of both the Soviet Union and China is a precarious situation and one mistake could lead the U.S into another long war. It seems the strain is too much, and unusual for Haines, he decides to take a week long vacation to Palm Springs, California for some R&R. But even more uncharacteristically, Haines declines to bring any reporter with him; the norm for him, while in office. Gunther Damon, news superintendent of the Washington Bureau of International Press is definitely suspicious. While not much a writer himself, Damon knows how to run a well-oiled team of reporters. And his gut instinct has never been wrong. In the early hours of the morning, President Haines’ plane goes missing. As the search for bodies goes on, the crew is slowly but surely accounted for; but no sign of President Haines. And then as one of Damon’s reporters find out, a body of unknown man is found amongst the wreckage. But it’s not President Haines’ body. In fact, the body is not of anyone who should’ve been on that plane. The corpse’s identity is a complete mystery. Which raises another mystery – where is the President of the United States? Set in the middle of the cold war, The President’s Plane is Missing is a thrilling and suspenseful mystery.
