The Re-Election Plot

DARK DAYS IN SEATTLE. An altered computer video that helped win a presidential election, a murder on the wet streets of Seattle, and political intrigues at the highest levels draw Peyton McKean into the most dangerous case of his life.

A DEATH SENTENCE FOR SPOTTING A POLITICAL DIRTY TRICK. When University of Washington computer-graphics Professor Kyle Smith is gunned down in cold blood, the police are mystified as to the motive. But when Peyton McKean accesses the dead man's computer, he finds a clue that is impossible to ignore — a video tape of Osama bin Laden released just before the presidential election that may have altered its outcome. A chain of events propels Peyton McKean down one of the most treacherous paths he has ever taken. Behind the scenes are corrupt politicians, organized crime, and a hitman whose singleminded purpose is to wipe out any and all who are aware of the fake video's origins.

This taut political thriller is a page turner, start-to-finish.
