Faithless Elector

James McCrone (Author)


A "fast-moving topical thriller. Its surprising twists add up to a highly suspenseful read." --Publishers Weekly

"A gripping and intelligently executed political drama." --Kirkus Review

Matthew Yamashita, a young researcher, uncovers a series of suspicious deaths among Electors while collecting polling data. Seven have died, seemingly by accident, and he's the only one with a national list tracking all Electors. No one else has put it together because the lists are tracked state-by-state and no two Electors have died in any given state.

Matthew and his mentor, Duncan Calder, get to work trying to figure out why it's happening. While the suspicious deaths are only on their radar, they're already in the sights of the conspirators.

When FBI agent Imogen Trager is first confronted with the evidence she's skeptical, but as she glimpses how deep the plot goes--and how high--she too begins to fear for her life. Who can she trust, and how can she follow the trail? The legitimacy of the presidency hangs in the balance. Can she save America from a web of corruption without a name? There are fewer than three weeks until the real presidential election.

The debut novel in the Imogen Trager series.

"Faithless Elector is a fast-moving topical thriller." Its "surprising twists add up to a highly suspenseful read." -Publishers Weekly (July 11)

"A gripping and intelligently executed political drama." -Kirkus Reviews

"A solidly crafted, high-concept thriller. It's taut and well-paced, but for readers reading between the lines it also works on a moral level." -BookViral

"The pleasure of Faithless Elector lies not just in its smooth evocative prose, but in the author's justified confidence that good writing can make chases through recognizable locales sufficiently exciting without a Navy SEAL or a terrorist plot." -Plattsburgh Press-Republican

"Be prepared to read this book in a very short period of time-it's that intriguing. There are mysterious deaths, a hint of romance, amateur detective work, and a plot that will have you wondering who done it right up until the end...and maybe afterwards." Florence Osmund (author/reviewer),

"I could hardly put it down. The characters in this book were strong and believable... particularly Imogen Trager, a former grad-student of his who is now working for the FBI...The descriptions and imagery were fantastic. The author described the various settings using prose that read like literary ambrosia. Yet, he knew when to cut to the chase, literally, and make the story and plot move at a breathless pace. It reminded me so much of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels..." -Marcha Cox (author/reviewer) Two-Cents Worth blog
