Wild American adventure of two Irish exiles, culminating in the accidental kidnapping of the US President on top of the Empire State Building.It's bad enough having a name like Nathan Jones ' unless you're a Supremes fan, which Nathan isn't ' but when his girlfriend leaves him (for a drag queen) and he gets mugged, then handcuffed to a bed and cut up in a misunderstanding with an S&M hooker, it looks as if things can't get any worse for this exile in the Big Apple. But they can! Will Nathan get his girl back? Will the President survive imprisonment by a psychotic white supremist in (rapidly melting) black-face? Will veteran lift-operator Sam McClusky get his job back? Find out in Empire State.The stage is set for a vintage Bateman adventure, which takes the world of politics ' international, racial and sexual ' and holds it hostage atop the most famous building on Earth.
