The fourth perimeter is composed of Secret Service agents protecting the president, and, here, in the latest from pro-football player-turned-writer/lawyer/commentator Green (The Letter of the Law, 2000, etc.), Kurt Ford intends to breach it. Former SS agent turned wealthy businessman, Ford has just proposed to young dream-date Jill when he learns that his Secret Service agent son is dead. While it’s officially judged a suicide, Kurt doesn’t believe it, and when he learns that other young agents met similar ends, the only clue points to the president himself. Kurt investigates and machinations unfold, while the real bad guys, an unsuspected old friend and his hired gun, hover and watch.
