Fiction

This gripping tale of murder, politics, conspiracy and passion takes aim at the American political system, the white supremacy movement and racial stereotypes while offering a sinister explanation for the “20-Year Jinx” that has claimed the lives of seven presidents.

Young estate lawyer Benjamin Franklin Kravner discovers a cryptic poem among his murdered client's possessions that hints at a 160-year vendetta against the American presidency. Ben's skepticism wanes when he discovers an unusual phenomenon: the presidents elected every twenty years from 1840 through 1960 died in office, and Ronald Reagan barely survived an assassination attempt. Ben's perilous journey leads him to the answer to his question: is the poem merely a dead man's wacky conspiracy theory or is a powerful cabal primed to claim the White House as vengeance for their ancestor’s death? 


Excerpt


Ben sucked in a deep breath, then metamorphosed as he expelled it, the steaming mist rising high into the air before dissipating. His eyes blazed. His nostrils flared. His jaw set firmly. The anger and sorrow that moments ago had almost conquered him were now the fuel that stoked the fire within. Passion overcame fear. The Royal Order of the Millennium Knight beware--Benjamin Franklin Kravner, Hawkeye, was on the warpath.

Ben gave one final hard look a the clump of trees where he last saw Fritz Fox alive. "They don't know the meaning of vengeance," he said out loud, then bolted east, along the lake's southern shore.



Professional Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Kahn's debut effort packs a punch."

Midwest Book Review
"Smashing...Kahn has produced a first-rate novel that ranks with John Grisham and Frederick Forsyth."

Legal Times,
"Blending a flair for history, a convincing sense of the inner workings of law firms, and more than a touch of apocalyptic folderol, Kahn has concocted a highly readable thriller...A remarkably well-crafted book."
