Set in Washington D.C., this fascinating thriller of unparalleled suspense dares to explore an unthinkable abuse of power and criminal conspiracy: a vicious murder involving the US president and a cover-up orchestrated by his zealously loyal chief of staff and the Secret Service. But unknown to the president and his lackeys, one unlikely witness saw everything. Trapped behind a two-way mirror in a country house in Maryland, Luther Whitney, a professional burglar, witnesses an event that destroys his faith in justice. By the time he escapes, pursued by two Secret Service agents, a young woman has been sexually assaulted and then shot dead. And a breathtaking cover-up has been set in motion.More

What a story. What a reader.
I definitely would on this occasion.
The pace and twist and turns.
They were ALL excellent, what a gifted actor he is.
No, but kept me gripped.
Congratulations to Mark Strong, a triumph.
