Shall We Tell the President?

Shall We Tell The President? by Jeffrey Archer is a political thriller. Written in 1977, this book does not quite hold up to the passage of time, but is still an enjoyable FBI story.

Florentyna Kane is the first female president of the U.S. She became president after the former president was killed. After her reelection her major policy goal is to pass a gun control bill.

The gun lobby - including the NRA and gun manufacturers - is not happy about her attempt. But one group plans to take it a step farther. They will assassinate the president on her way to a special session of Congress where she argues for her bill.

Special Agent Mark Andrews stumbles across the plot involving a U.S. senator. But out of the 100 senators he must narrow the possible choices down to one in a matter of 7 days. He knows the date, but doesn't know the reason behind the assassination attempt or where it will be carried out.
