Virtual Book Launch for Emergency Powers, hosted by Shakespeare & Co. Rittenhouse
October 1 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
October 1st, 6:30 pm – Book Launch: Emergency Powers, a thriller by Philadelphia’s own James McCrone, in conversation with crime fiction author and journalist R. G. Belsky.
The accidental president is no accident.
When the president dies in office, FBI Agent Imogen Trager knows that the conspiracy she chased down a blind alley still has life in it–and she needs to get back in the hunt. The old case may be the key to stopping a brutal, false flag terrorist attack meant to finalize the new puppet president’s grip on power.
Emergency Powers will delight mystery and thriller fans. Political junkies will enjoy its ripped-from-the-headlines urgency. But it’s about more than the headlines. And darker. A story of corruption and redemption, achieved at enormous personal cost.
Emergency Powers features FBI Agent Imogen Trager: “a memorable protagonist—a ‘bookish’ and ‘formal’ intellectual who’s as tough as she is smart.” (Kirkus Review). “Three tough female characters steal the show: FBI agents Vega, Sartain, and Trager. Overall, the power dynamics of these women with the rest of the cast are something special to pay attention to.” (T. LIEBERMAN, Independent Book Review)
