Who owns the most powerful man in the world?

Her code name is Kingfisher. Her mission: to seduce and marry a man of wealth and political influence. Now she must protect a terrifying secret. 

October 2016: In America, the election is a few weeks away. Journalist Grace Elliott has just landed a scoop that she believes will make her career. A porn star is willing to talk about her affair with the man some hope and many fear will become the next president of the United States. But no one will touch it. Not even Grace's boss, the right-wing publisher of America's leading tabloid. Instead, Grace is sent to Europe where she discovers a story so big, so explosive that it could decide the American election and launch a new Cold War. As long as she can stay alive long enough to tell it. 

Spies, murder, and one of the biggest conspiracies of our time lie at the heart of this immersive thriller.

Praise For…

“A tantalizing new thriller . . . there is great house-of-mirrors fun to be had.” —Globe and Mail
“In an era when our credulity is stretched daily by political stories . . . the idea that a president’s former wife was trained by the KGB to trap a man with political aspirations might not be so hard to believe. The narrative jumps locales as often and as quickly as a private jet in a time warp.” —Toronto Star
“[A] suggestive thriller . . . There are lots of twists and turns, red herrings, and characters to follow . . . even when truth is stranger than fiction, this bit of fiction is satisfyingly offbeat.” —Kirkus Reviews
