THE BLUE FOLIO - a political thriller by Matt McMahon

Twenty-two years after the new constitution pacified the anger of the American people, Bill Waverly, the president's attorney, finds himself at the center of a crisis that threatens the president's job, her life and the new people-centric government in this near-future political thriller which could be ripped from today's headlines.

Bill painstakingly crafts every move trying to protect the president, even against herself, until the special prosecutor, the formidable Keri Marshall, the first independent Attorney General elected after the new constitution, traps him into having to choose between protecting his most cherished asset, the president, the source of his power, and his deeply buried convictions.

He reaches out to get his old law professor, the fatherly George Comstock, one of the most influential living re-framers of the new constitution, to help save the president. But what Bill doesn't see is how backroom intrigues intertwined throughout the constitutional convention in 2037 and the new constitution's most perilous application in 2059 threaten his own life and the lives of those around him.

"a near-future political struggle so compelling and realistic that it’s easy to imagine it reflected on tomorrow’s front page."
