Shelley's Heart

Author(s): Charles McCarry

General Fiction

The first US presidential election of the twenty-first century has been stolen, after having been bitterly contested by two men who are implacable political rivals but lifelong personal friends. The riveting plot turns on the consequent battle for power between President Bedford Forrest 'Frosty' Lockwood, the current occupant of the White House, and his supposedly defeated rival, former President Franklin Mallory. In this vast, captivating novel, Washington's high-powered world of enmity and friendship, and loyalty and cunning, is rendered with a unique, behind-the-scenes realism. Shelley's Heart is so gripping and so striking, even frightening, in its plausibility, that this tale of love, murder, betrayal, and life-or-death struggle for the political soul of America could well be mistaken for an act of prophecy than a work of the imagination.
