Image of item

First edition.

"Living in semiretirement with Kai, his soon to be wife, Murphy is called back to action by his former boss, ex-President Grant. Writing his memoirs, Grant is about to embark on a cross-country speaking tour and wants Murphy to act as his private bodyguard. Murphy agrees and the tour starts without a hitch until they reach Washington DC. At a prominent university in the Washington area, a man suddenly stands in the middle of Grant's lecture, pulls a gun, screams "The South shall rise again," and attempts to assassinate Grant.

Shortly thereafter, the real motive for the assassination attempt is revealed when it is learned that the niece of the British Ambassador, a student at the University of Virginia, where the shooting took place, has been kidnapped and the ransom is a quarter of a million in gold"--
