Everyone thinks "The List"-the President's black book-is a myth.Only two men know the truth. Now one of them is dead.On a clear September night, Air Force 2 suddenly falls out of the sky, killing the Vice-President, Chief of Staff, and everyone else on the plane. The American President is desperate. The List - the comprehensive list of favors given and owed at the highest level of U.S. government since the 1970s is missing. It could be disastrous for the entire nation and a host of foreign superpowers if that List falls into the wrong hands.
