I was on the lookout for some new thriller novels on Barnes and Noble when I came across the listing for Blowback by James Patterson and Brendan DuBois. I am a big fan of Patterson, so I usually enjoy grabbing a copy of each of his new novels. This one sounds just as exciting, focusing on an American president who is also a psychopath, looking to start a world war. This sounds like both an intriguing and a scary novel.
As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Blowback is:
"US President Keegan Barrett has swept into office on his success as Director of the CIA. Six months into his first term, he devises a clandestine power grab with deadly consequences.
Barrett personally orders CIA agents Liam Grey and Noa Himel to execute his plan, but their loyalties are divided. The CIA serves at the pleasure of the president, yet they’ve sworn to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
When the threat comes directly from the Oval Office, that’s where the blowback begins."
