When private detective Dana Cutler is hired to follow college student Charlotte Walsh, she never imagines the trail will lead to the White House. But the morning after Walsh's clandestine meeting with Christopher Farrington, President of the United States, the pretty young coed is dead--the latest victim, apparently, of a fiend dubbed "the D.C. Ripper."

A junior associate in an Oregon law firm, Brad Miller is stunned by the death row revelations of convicted serial killer Clarence Little. Though Little accepts responsibility for a string of gruesome murders, he swears he was framed for one of them: the death of a teenaged babysitter who worked for then-governor Farrington.

Suddenly nowhere in America is safe for a small-time private eye and a fledgling lawyer who possess terrifying evidence that suggests the unthinkable: that someone at the very highest level of government, perhaps the president himself, is a cold and brutal killer.

"How's this for a premise: the sitting U.S. president, who's fighting for reelection, might be a serial killer. Private detective Dana Cutler witnessed an assignation between the president and a young woman; the next day, the woman's mutilated body is found, possibly the victim of a killer stalking the streets of D.C. known as "the D.C. Ripper." Meanwhile, on the West Coast, a junior lawyer uncovers a link between a long-ago murder and the current president. Coincidence? Is the president in fact a serial killer? Or is someone else protecting his serial philandering? While some readers may find it a bit hard to believe, most will be rewarded with a fast-paced, twisty read."
