In the year 2006 Long Island Congressman Sean Cross, a Republican, is looking forward to re-election when the murder of an IRA informer in his district not only threatens his incumbency, but the fragile Irish peace process as well. In a desperate effort to solve the murder and stave off political defeat, Cross enlists the aid of an old ally in forging the Irish peace accords - former President Bill Clinton, now living in New York. The story moves back and forth from New York, to Belfast, to London, to Washington, D.C, while real life figures such as Gerry Adams, Tony Blair and Bill Clinton move seamlessly in flashbacks from actual historic roles to fictional exploits.
In crafting this mosaic of historic reality and fictional possibility, Congressman Peter King relies on confidential data and records during the years the Irish Peace process was being forged and the impeachment war was raging. King - a Republican Congressman who voted against Impeachment - here provides an unvarnished view of power politics, both in the international arena as well as in the dissection of the Lewinsky affair in the corridors of Congress.
