The President of the United States has resigned in disgrace, and the government that takes over is shaky and unsure of itself in the face of severe foreign and domestic crises. This is not fiction, but a snapshot of America from August 8 to September 8, 1974, between Nixon’s resignation and Ford’s pardon. Robertson Dean does a masterful job of reading this story of political intrigue and establishes himself as a major voice in narration. His earthy, measured tone and succinct pacing make this book as taut as any political thriller, even though we know what happens in the end. Dean knows just where to pause, move forward, and emphasize keywords in order to make this story a fascinating study of its time and for ours. R.I.G.
