Billionaire Julian Mellow has ruthlessly acquired many of the world's largest and most profitable companies. Now he's set his sights on the ultimate takeover target: the White House. Driven by a secret thirst for revenge, Julian stops at nothing to achieve his ambition. Using a powerful but flawed senator as his public surrogate, he manipulates the media, the financial markets and the political system to advance his hidden agenda. But Julian hasn't counted on the appearance of an unlikely nemesis. Zack Springer took the fall for Julian in a financial scandal and is determined to bring down his former mentor. He stumbles on a plot so audacious he wonders if even Julian has overreached. Then a woman is brutally murdered in Zach's apartment and he's the only suspect. To prove his innocence and stay alive, he has no choice but to expose the outrageous plot. Takeover introduces a cast of unforgettable characters, from the ex-radical who commits unspeakable crimes to safeguard the future of his autistic daughter to a former fashion model now risking death as a freedom fighter in her native Africa, unaware that she is a pawn in a much riskier power game. Takeover combines edge-of-your-seat suspense with an intricately imagined plot that also raises some tough questions about the role of money and influence in American politics.
