From the bestselling author of CAMELOT'S COUSIN, comes another TEMPLETON DAVIS adventure...The daring and deadly midday abduction of a former President of the United States triggers a national and international crisis. But he's only one of the Presidents involved in the story. NOVEMBER SURPRISE is really the story of three Presidents--the one taken, the one in the White House, and the one who was elected just a few days earlier. Not only the first female to be elected to the nation's highest office, she's the only daughter of the former President who's been kidnapped and is feared dead. And though she's not yet taken the oath of office, it's clear that she's the key player in the dramatic story that unfolds. Her confidence in the outgoing administration is less than strong, and she turns to one of her best friends for help. TEMPLETON DAVIS (Camelot's Cousin), nationally known radio talk-show host, media personality, and best-selling author, is recruited by the President-elect to help with the investigation. Davis, whose recent work (chronicled in Camelot's Cousin) helped solve the mysteries surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy decades earlier, has brought together a talented team of security and intelligence experts. Called The Project, this off-the-record and under-the-radar band of operatives turn out to be much more effective than "official" counterparts. But will they be able to solve the crime of the century?

About the Author

David R. Stokes (57) is a Wall Street Journal bestselling author. He is currently working on several projects for publication in 2013 and 2014. Retired FBI Agent and Bestselling author, Bob Hamer, says, "David Stokes combines his meticulous research with a writing style which makes you feel as though you are that fly-on-the-wall witnessing history as it unfolds." David grew up in the Detroit, Michigan area and has been a minister for 35 years. Along the way he added radio broadcaster, columnist, and author to his resume, while living and serving in Texas, Illinois, New York, and for the past 15 years--beautiful Northern Virginia. David has been married to his wife, Karen, for 37 years and they have been blessed with three daughters--all now grown and with wonderful children of their own. There are, in fact, seven grandchildren, a fact verified by hundreds--maybe thousands--of pictures, as well as an ever-growing collection of toys joyously cluttering their home.
