Baron James is poised to become the nation's first black president. He is handsome, young, and everything else positive his consultants could create. Racially he is the perfect amalgamation of melting pot America having features that neither define nor offend. He could be black, Hispanic or of Mediterranean heritage. All of which makes him so far ahead in the polls his election is already being referred to as a coronation. An earlier scandal linking his republican opponent to the Klan iced the election and James' victory.
Baron James is also a marked man, and keeping him alive till Election Day will take a miracle. He is hated by every extremist group that can still hold a gun license. The Klan put a bounty on his head, and militias see him as a threat to the second amendment, but it is an invisible overseas enemy that has proven to be deadliest of all.
A shadowy group known as 'The Consortium,' with ties to the Vatican, and a history that dates back to the Lincoln Assassination, has vowed to either control Baron James...or kill him. The group has one point four trillion reasons to want James dead. That's the price tag attached to a slavery reparations lawsuit creeping through the courts. 'The Consortium' fears because Baron James is black he would shepherd the lawsuit through the judicial system and ruin their centuries old hold on power.
The key to the mystery is in the code, 1.31/6:05, but can they solve it in time?
'The Race' is Dan Brown's DaVinci Code, meets Tom Clancy CIA. It is a multi-national thrill ride with a jaw dropping ending that is sure to have all of Washington talking. The Race is more than just a political based murder mystery; it is also the story of the racism that divides us and the DNA that makes us one.
