A classic struggle of Venus and Mars
One woman's vision challenges traditional masculine values and tactics
In a battle for the U.S. presidency, the candidacy of a charismatic leader, Claire Alden, threatens the status quo. A devastating betrayal robs Claire of trusted advisors; the man she looks to for love and support may not deserve her trust; and a mysterious rose-sender plots her death, all combining to hold the nation in the grip of profound suspense on Election Day.
"A three-dimensional thriller. Fast pace, strong characters, and a plot both deep and rich. Not to be missed."
~ Mark A. Clements, Geisel-Award Winning Author The Land of Nod
"Judith Hand has created a gripping thriller and an intriguing love story. Claire Alden, meets her match in Savik Kodaly, a complex antagonist who may not buy into Claire's vision for a less violent future. Assassin's Rose grabs the reader from the first page and moves smoothly through unexpected twists to an astonishing climax."
~ Candace Toft, Author of The Trap
"Driven by real issues, this ground-breaking political novel is as relevant as today's headlines and Claire Alden—part Oprah, part Nobel Laureate, part just plain gorgeous—is a presidential candidate for the 21st century. Assassin's Rose is fast paced entertainment and thought provoking at the same time." ~ Drusilla Campbell, Author of Blood Orange and Bone Lake
