A thunderbolt of a novel! Madame President begins with a literal explosion and sustains the tension beautifully all the way to its powerful conclusion. Williams and Guttman offer far more than a powerful, inventive plot – they give us characters to genuinely care about, especially the beautifully drawn title character, Kate McIntyre, Madame President herself. It’s a hard book to put down, and at the same time you don’t want to come to the end because the world it creates is so compelling.
