I am a fan of good mystery/thrillers. “The President Killed His Wife” by Steve Richer is one of those thrillers. The story begins as the President takes the podium to address the nation in the State of the Union Address. Minutes into the speech it is evident that something is terribly wrong with the President. Then the nation watches in horror as he motions to a Secret Service Agent, swiftly grabs his gun and murders his wife sitting in the gallery. This crime is captured on all the news channels live.
Rogan Bricks, an FBI agent, is called in to head the investigation. He is given carte blanche by the Director and all avenues are at his disposal. Everyone saw the President do the deed. It should be an open and shut case…but is it? Reading this book was interesting in that the victims and the criminals kept getting confused. Although the premise is a bit far-fetched, the story kept my interest and kept me reading until I finished it. I highly recommend this book for lovers of mystery and mayhem.
I received a free Kindle copy of the book in return for my honest opinion of the book from NetGalley.com.
