This is the fictional story of an American child who is indoctrinated in a Muslim country. He then returns to America. He grows up pretending to be all-American, enters politics and eventually runs for the highest office. All through his life, he is covertly supported and directed by extremist Muslims. The author draws inspiration from Richard Condon's 1959 thriller, The Manchurian Candidate. But he has concocted the story based on modern circumstances and threats facing the Western world. The parallels to the 2008 election are striking. The author offers an imaginative explanation for the actions of Candidate's mother, wife and even his preacher. He also portrays a shadowy cartel of leaders of several Middle-Eastern countries orchestrating the Candidate's success behind the scenes. The author describes a plausible scenario by embedding, then twisting facts of recent history. The reader will needs to constantly remind himself/herself that this is fiction.
