Imogen Trager, the determined heroine of the "highly suspenseful" thriller, Faithless Elector returns, desperate to stop a murderous dark network intent on stealing the presidency. She'll have to fight against time, a sinister network, and even her own colleagues to stop the conspiracy to seize the presidency.

Although not based directly on events now gripping the world, Dark Network certainly resonates with them, offering a sharp critique of a US political system that didn't anticipate the ruthlessness of a modern criminal-business complex. With fraught, evocative prose, James McCrone shows how easily power can be stolen from the people by a hidden network with a criminal agenda.

The FBI is leaking, the Attorney General is being undermined, politicians are spinning, social media is in an uproar and a murderous dark network is gunning for anyone standing in its way.
