Absolute Power: The Screenplay
Hal Leonard Corporation, 1997 - Performing Arts - 160 pages
(Applause Books). When a routine burglary in an elegant, upscale Virginia mansion goes awry, career thief Luther Whitney finds himself witness to a brutal murder involving none other than Alan Richmond, the youthful, charming, and thoroughly corrupt President of the United States. Torn between fear for his life and devotion to his family and country, Luther must make a decision that will change not only his own destiny, but the destiny of the world as we know it. Based on the best-selling thriller by David Baldacci, described as "relentlessly entertaining" by The Atlanta Journal & Constitution , William Goldman's screenplay captures the paranoia, greed, and corruption of politics through the ages and around the world.
