No one would suspect that the rural area of Northumberland, England, would be the stage for the kidnapping of newly elected U.S. President Joel Waterstone, a Jewish candidate who won the White House as an unabashed liberal standing tall against the forces of religious fundamentalism, both at home and abroad. Narrator Garrick Hagon builds tension and suspense in characters who believe living for the next life is more important than existing in this one. As the corkscrew plot builds to an apocalyptic climax, listeners looking for escapist entertainment with a philosophical twist will find this most enlightening.
