POTUS is dead.
This startling premise is the core of the political thriller, 25.4 Presidents’ Odyssey by V. B. Patel. This edge of your seat roller coaster ride explores the chaos that ensues when Democratic president Victor Diaz’s plane crashes and he’s presumed dead. His vice-president, Jacob Tenery, now president as well an old friend and a Republican, is pressured and blackmailed by his party to go against everything he’s believed in.
But what if President Diaz is still alive?
The cryptic title refers to the Twenty-fifth Amendment, section 4 of the U.S. Constitution and how it details the steps of succession at the top of the government. The questions and scenarios that the book proposes set the emotional tone of this gripping tale when reality takes a distinct right turn, causing a constitutional crisis never before seen in the annals of the U. S. politics.
But one that could happen.
