Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"As a Secret Service agent, Nick Averose spent a decade protecting the most powerful men and women in America and developed a unique gift: the ability to think like an assassin. Now, he uses that skill in a little-known but crucial job. As a 'red teamer,' he poses as a threat, testing the security around our highest officials to find vulnerabilities--before our enemies can. He is a mock killer, capable of slipping past even the best defenses. His latest assignment is to assess the security surrounding the former CIA director at his DC area home. But soon after he breaches the man's study, the home's inner sanctum, Nick finds himself entangled in a vicious crime that will shake Washington to its foundations--as all the evidence points to Nick. Nick knows he's the perfect scapegoat. But who is framing him, and why? To clear his name, he must find the truth--a search that leads to a dark conspiracy whose roots stretch back decades. The prize is the most powerful position in the world: the Oval Office. To save himself and the people he loves, Nick must stop the men who rule Washington before they bury him along with their secrets." -- Amazon.
