Mirror, Mirror at 1600 D.C. - a political thriller by Ed Galluzzi


What happened to the first woman President of the United States?
The role of the Presidency is complicated more than enough for Elizabeth Ashton without the added political burden of being the first woman elected to this high office in America.  She is delighting her supporters and converting readily her critics when she goes missing.  The unfolding plot is a matter of survival—not only personal survival, but also hanging in the balance is the endurance of the Presidency and democracy in America.

The agent in charge has little clues of why or how, but finds a trail that leads him to some answers. However, his success leads to his incarceration only to discover perhaps what he is looking for in the adjacent cell. Is this the end of his journey?

Here is an excerpt from Mirror, Mirror at 1600 D.C.:  "Harrison was unaware of the passage of time as he awoke struggling to open his heavy eyelids. The starkness of his cell quickly brought to mind his circumstances. Harrison raised himself from the ground where he had slept. The cell was dimly lit as before denying Harrison clues as to the time of day or night. As he turned toward one of the adjacent cells, he was reminded of the coffin-like piece of furniture. Harrison walked toward the iron bars that formed a common wall between the two cells. He needed to view the contents of the “unoccupied” cell. Would he find Elizabeth Ashton in her final resting place?"
