"Death of the First Lady" (Defenders of the Faith series)
What if the cameras were turned around on the media? The first lady leaves a note for the president blaming the tabloid media for her suicide. Her last wish is he use the tabloids own tactics against them and expose the hypocrites in the press.
Torn between doing the right thing and avenging her death, Republican President Jack Roberts eventually succumbs to his bitterness and hires the ex-director of the FBI, Cliff Branch, to dig up dirt on the media and blackmail them during his reelection campaign. As a former journalist, Roberts convinces himself he is doing the media a favor. He is only demanding equal coverage and forcing them to do their job right.
But, the ex-director, a victim of the media over 9/11 and burgeoning alcoholic, spins out of control and murders two innocent bystanders. Secret Service agent Ron Brown discovers the media plot and murders and ends up running for his life, branded a killer and traitor by the man he risked his life to protect.
Only the fugitive agent and two unlikely allies, the president's chief advisor, and a pastor, can bring down the most powerful man in the world.
