Rate this:
Every January, by law, the president of the United States goes to the Capital to deliver the State of the Union address. The vice president, every senator, every representative, and every cabinet member but one are there to listen. If a bomb went off, people joke, the government would be wiped out. But what if one year it wasn't a joke....

Special Forces Lieutenant Zach Turzin is a bona fide hero -- a Medal of Honor winner for a dangerous operation in northern Iraq. But his days as a covert warrior are over. So when the legendary Admiral Jeff Forsten offers him a post at the Pentagon, Zach jumps at the chance.

Forsten is a maverick -- a right-leaning ideologue who makes no secret of his disdain for the president or the direction the country is headed. But as the date of the president's State of the Union address approaches, Zach begins to suspect his boss of a monstrous plan. And only Zach can stop it.

Written with the breakneck pace and inside-Washington savvy of Absolute Power, State of the Union is an up-to-the-minute Seven Days in May -- a turbocharged thriller that brings to life a terrifyingly believable plan for a right-wing military coup.
