Summary
In 1955, one woman holds the key to America's future: a ruthless and beautiful ex-Nazi assassin, posing as a housekeeper inside President Eisenhower's isolated Gettysburg estate, awaiting her chance to murder the chief executive and change the course of history. One man stands in her way: a disgraced Secret Service agent, driven from active duty by battle fatigue. Waiting and watching: the most powerful figures of the era, including Senator Joe McCarthy, FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover, Vice President Richard Nixon, and the sinister pair of German-American brothers sponsoring the attack.--Publisher's description
