|Summary, etc.:|| Richard North Patterson delivers another gripping legal thriller about the charismatic young Democratic President Kerry Kilcannon. Five months into his term, Kilcannon and his fiance, television journalist Lara Costello, decide at last to marry. When the wedding culminates in a tragic shooting, the President embarks upon a high-stakes battle with the gun lobby. When Kilcannon uses his clout to support a class action suit on behalf of gun victims, the gun industry attempts to use every political tactic in the book to bring him and the lawsuit down. Balance of power is a rare combination: a Washington insider's intellectually engaging analysis of contemporary politics that exposes the connections between gun carnage, political power, and greed -- and a compelling page-turner that brings the headlines to life.
