Baker & Taylor
In the wake of a heated presidential race headed by incumbents determined to further their radical policies, a rising young California senator learns of a plot designed to seize control of the government and impose a dictatorship.


Hoping to escape the political spotlight, Bobby Hart, senator from California, declined a presidential run. But while in Germany, the idealistic young politician discovers terrifying evidence of a conspiracy to destroy democracy in America—an unthinkable plot codenamed Rubicon.

Someone important is going to die, though Hart doesn't know who, or why, or when. Only two things are clear: it will happen some time before the upcoming election—and once it does, like Caesar's army crossing the fabled river on their relentless march toward Rome, there will be no turning back.

Caught in a desperate race against death and time, Bobby Hart must now expose an insidious nightmare that threatens every man, woman, and child in America. Because Rubicon is not about stealing a presidential election—it is about stealing a country.

OMG! what a surprise this was. I picked this up because the title sounded familiar. The story was really good - I who love murder mysteries was surprised at the culprit at the end - if you love suspense and mysteries.... pick this one up .. I think you will enjoy it. But I warn you... you will have to use the grey cells.
