Twenty years ago, four high school senior boys caused a tragic accident but got away undiscovered. Ever since, they’ve guarded the secret that would have ruined their lives as they pursued successful careers. Then a blackmailer makes contact, and they realize that, somehow, their secret has been exposed. Las Vegas billionaire Wendell Logan has obsessed for years over becoming a political kingmaker, and he has found the perfect candidate to put in the White House – Alan Granger, the governor of Pennsylvania. But Granger was one of those boys, and because of the blackmail, he has to confess his closet skeleton to his potential benefactor. Now Logan has a big problem. He’s put too much effort and money into his Machiavellian scheme, though, to let this disturbing news keep him from fulfilling his dream. His solution: make sure all who know the secret that would doom Granger’s presidential campaign can never reveal it. It’s time to run.
