9781469216928: I Do Solemnly Swear

As second in command, Katherine Ann Miles understands the responsibilities of her role as vice president. But when the president of the United States dies from a heart attack only eight months into his term, Katherine feels utterly unprepared to assume the highest office in the land. Yet the new president has little time to dwell on the battles raging with Congress and within her own marriage: Iran is making pointed, grave threats toward Israel, and she will have to employ all her skills and diplomacy to avert a major military conflict. But just as the crisis heats up, clues emerge, suggesting that her beloved predecessor was assassinated and whoever wanted him dead is out to get her as well ― closer than she realizes.

About the Author:

Daniel M. Annechino wrote his first book, How to Buy the Most Car for the Least Money, in 1992, while working as a general manager in the automotive business. But his true passion has always been fiction, especially thrillers. He indulged his taste for suspense during his former career as a book editor specializing in full-length fiction. He spent two years researching serial killers before finally penning his gripping and memorable debut novel, They Never Die Quietly. He went on to publish Resuscitation, a follow-up thriller. His third novel, I Do Solemnly Swear, is a political thriller. A native of New York, he lives today in San Diego with his wife, Jennifer. When not writing, he enjoys cooking, drinking vintage wines, and spending time on the warm beaches of Southern California.

From Booklist:

Feminists, rejoice: Kansas farm girl Kate Miles takes office as the first female president when the president dies of a coronary less than a year into his administration. However, the former first lady warns the new president that something is amiss about her husband’s death, and away we go into conspiracy land. The new president has her hands full with the selection of a new vice president, a crumbling marriage, a Middle East crisis, the investigation into the apparent assassination, and a staff with varying allegiances. Unfortunately, the only characters that are fully fleshed out are President Miles and the bad guy with the requisite abusive childhood. The rest of the cast dances across the pages with no motivation, no background, and, occasionally, no purpose. If all this sounds a bit clichéd, it is; nonetheless, the pages fly by despite the occasional jolting transitions in story line and the trite ending that leaves the door wide open for a sequel. While not in the same class as Brad Meltzer, Vince Flynn, or David Baldacci, Annechino will still appeal to those junkies who take their political thrillers any way they can get them. --Stacy Alesi
