Black President


A brilliant, timely debut novel from seasoned American writer/movie-director Rick Schmidt. Thrilling page-turning ride through forty years of US subterfuge, civil rights, threat to personal freedoms, scandal and conspiracy from the Bay of Pigs to the horrors of the Twin Towers and beyond. Against all conceivable adversity and dirt-poor poverty, the rise of JFK's black illegitimate twin sons until one of them secures the US presidency in 2012. Black Camelot is born. Topical, fast-paced must-read for those who want to know more about the USA.
