_ Washington D.C. is the city of secrets. Everyone within its walls has one, including Senator William Davis. He has just been elected as the GOP’s candidate for presidency, but if the public knew of his illicit, shady passed, they’d more than likely put him behind bars than in the oval office.
Lanh Huu is well aware of Davis’ passed. He’s the boy whom Davis had kidnapped and brought to the U.S. to use in a plot to snare a deal with the Chinese. Davis photographed him in some very compromising photos with a Chinese ambassador. Blackmail is Davis’ trademark.
Years later, Lanh refuses to keep quiet as Davis is about to be elected to the highest office in the land. He tells his story to Daniel Harrison, a young, aspiring reporter working for the largest media outlet in the city. She refuses to believe him until her life is threatened. She begins to retrace his steps from his first night of being captive on U.S. soil and with each step, she comes closer to bringing Davis to justice, but the Senator isn’t a fool. He’s eliminating everyone in his path that can connect him with days gone by, but Lanh and Daniel have the smoking gun. Davis’ former aide and present day Congressman, Jonathan Dalton, is ready to talk. If the story makes it to print, public scrutiny will force Davis to resign and face the music. The race is on. Will they get it to print before Davis catches up to them or will Davis succeed in taking his secret to the White House?
