I’ve examined the balance of power in the United States in several of my books because the Founding Fathers never intended their work to last this long.
In The Line, I looked at what the military might do if it felt the President was going against what they viewed as the national interest and planned a coup.
In The Jefferson Allegiance I imagined if Jefferson and Hamilton, two political rivals, actually acted together to enact a secret document that was law in order to restrain a president who went too far. The document became The Jefferson Allegiance. It’s been used a number of times: Polk, Lincoln, Roosevelt (two of them), Kennedy, Nixon and others. The premise of the book is that today a group is looking for the original document in order to destroy it so that it can’t be used again.
When it was released, this book became the #2 seller at Barnes and Noble. Here is The Jefferson Allegiance:
