9781626811058: Executive Actions (The Executive Series)

A Soviet plot has deadly repercussions for modern America.

"EXECUTIVE ACTIONS is the best political thriller I have read in a long, long time―right up there with the very best of David Baldacci. Gary Grossman has written a masterpiece of suspense, powerfully written and filled with wildly imaginative twists. Get ready to lose yourself in a hell of a story." ―Michael Palmer, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of OATH OF OFFICE

An assassin's bullet changes the course of the Presidential election― not by killing Democratic candidate Teddy Lodge, but his wife. Riding a wave of popular sympathy, Lodge surges forward as the man to beat for incumbent President Morgan Taylor. Secret Service Agent Scott Roarke is ordered by President Taylor to investigate the assassination, and unravels a deadly Soviet plot that has incubated for more than 30 years. Now in the hands of a power hungry Middle Eastern heir to the throne, Agent Roarke must stop a sleeper agent poised to change the course of American policy in the Middle East. EXECUTIVE ACTIONS is a tense political thriller, where both the Presidency and the Constitution are at stake.

He began his career at 15 as a disc jockey at WHUC, his local radio station in Hudson, New York. He went on to work at Boston television station, WBZ; joined The Boston Globe as a special contributor, and then became a full-time television critic and columnist at The Boston Herald American, before moving to Los Angeles. His articles have also appeared in The New York Times and numerous magazines. He has taught journalism and media classes at Emerson College, Boston University, and USC. Grossman's two previous acclaimed non-fiction books, Superman: Serial to Cereal and Saturday Morning TV, cover television history.

Grossman lives in Los Angeles with his wife, writer Helene Seifer, and their children Sasha, Zachary, and Jacob. He serves on the Emerson College Board of Trustees and the Boston University Metropolitan Advisory Board.

From Publishers Weekly :

TV producer Grossman's first thriller might well be subtitled "The Libyan Candidate." It starts with the assassination of apparently the wrong person—the wife of Massachusetts Democratic congressman Teddy Lodge, who's running a distant second in the presidential primaries. Lodge and his handlers use the killing to stir up a media storm to win first the nomination and then the presidency itself. But several people loyal to the defeated Republican president—especially Scott Roarke, a tough and resourceful agent for the Defense Intelligence Agency—begin to have suspicions about Teddy Lodge. Is he really who he claims to be? And who is the mysterious Libyan who appears to be pulling his strings and who perhaps even arranged the assassination of Mrs. Lodge? Grossman has done lots of research on everything from political infighting to clandestine military operations; despite a certain stiffness in his narrative technique, he manages to hold reader interest right up to the inevitable conclusion.
