Logan Black, a reluctant FBI agent, the president's information gofer, well on her way to becoming an alcoholic, catches the edge of something she doesn't understand. And people start dying. She races the clock to find out what's going on, and if she can't stay alive long enough to get that information out, a murderous fanatic will become the next president, and bodies will fill the streets.

A coup d'état in the United States is simply not possible.
The country wouldn't stand for it. The military wouldn't stand for it.
Of course, if they didn't know about it...
Logan Black thought she wanted to be an FBI agent, until she became one. But as a friend of the First Family, she gets seconded to the White House as the President's personal information gofer. A California girl who loathes the Washington weather, Logan consoles herself with the hacker's delight of passwords for every major computer system in the country. One day she comes across something she at first takes to be coordinated information leaks from the military.
And then people start dying.
Logan is better at interrogating computers than people, and faster with a keyboard than a gun. But a strong sense of self preservation keeps her alive just as a shocking day of coordinated violence hits Washington. But instead of arresting the plotters, Logan is accused of being one, with every federal, state and police agency in the country is after her. If Logan can't find out who is behind it all, and stay alive long enough to get the information out, the first coup de etate in American history will put a murderous fanatic in the White House.
