Why did I read this? Because it seemed like an interesting pairing of authors.
The President hear seems to be a composite of John McCain, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The President gets advance word of a cyber attack against the United States that completely cripple the country. To deal with it the President must go underground to work out who is behind the attack and how to combat it. At the same time he has to figure who in his cabinet and inner circle has been engaging in treasonous behavior. It is an exciting thriller with little politics, except for the long speech to a joint session of Congress in chapter 128.
