Description

Against the backdrop of the Paris Peace Conference that would remake Europe in the wake of World War I, David O. Stewart reunites Dr. Jamie Fraser and Speed Cook, protagonists of the acclaimed The Lincoln Deception, in an intriguing presidential mystery . . .

The Great War has ended, and President Woodrow Wilson’s arrival in Paris unites the city in ecstatic celebration. Major Jamie Fraser, an army physician who has spent ten months tending American soldiers, is among the crowd. As an expert on the Spanish influenza, Fraser is also called in to advise the president’s own doctor on how best to avoid the deadly disease. Despite his robust appearance, Wilson is more frail than the public realizes. And at this pivotal moment in history, the president’s health could decide the fate of nations.

While Fraser investigates Wilson’s maladies, he encounters a man he has not seen for twenty years. Speed Cook—ex-professional ball player and advocate for Negro rights—is desperate to save his son Joshua, an army sergeant wrongly accused of desertion. Pledging to help Cook, Fraser and his friend are soon embroiled in dramatic events unfolding throughout Paris. At stake is not only Joshua Cook’s freedom, but the fragile treaty that may be the only way to stop Europe from plunging into another brutal war.

PRAISE FOR DAVID O. STEWART AND THE LINCOLN DECEPTION

“More than enough to satisfy any reader of historical whodunits.”—The Washington Post

“A little-known aspect of Lincoln assassination lore makes a gripping thriller and historical inquiry.”—The Roanoke Beacon

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 31, 2015 – Stewart's uneven follow-up to 2013's The Lincoln Deception reunites American doctor Jamie Fraser and Speed Cook, the former baseball player turned Negro-rights activist, in Paris, where scores of international leaders converge in late 1918 to reshape Europe and the Middle East. Asked to consult on Woodrow Wilson's health, Fraser realizes that the architect of the new world order is mentally and physically fragile. Meanwhile, Cook enlists Fraser to help free his soldier son, Joshua, who has been imprisoned for desertion, despite behaving bravely on the battlefield. American spy Allen Dulles engineers Joshua's release and placement into Wilson's entourage as the president's valet, on the condition that Joshua feed him information about the president. Fraser's knowledge of the shady arrangement subjects him to blackmail from a Frenchman also keen to know the state of Wilson's health. Though an overly complex plot undercuts the suspense, Stewart deftly depicts the mood of an era and the colorful figures who shaped it.
