About the Book

The countdown to an election has begun. Network cameras are trained on the speaker atop the U.S. Capitol steps.
Suddenly seven shots ring out. . . chaos erupts. . . blood spills.
The live televised image of young Texas Senator Terry Fallon at the center of the violence is instantly etched in the hearts and minds of millions. In one shocking moment, Fallon is catapulted into prominence as America's favorite son. But is Fallon the champion of American ideals he appears to be -- or is he the ultimate media fabrication?
Favorite Son takes us deep into the secretive and electrifying world of the people who make Washington move and shake, the people--from the powerful and patriotic to the dangerous and corrupt--who, ruled by their obsessions and passions, juggle the destiny of the nation. Sweeping and suspenseful, Favorite Son is a heart-stopping thriller--the stuff of tomorrow's real-life ambitions and nightmares.
