The author, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, was Chief-of-Staff and National Security Advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney and Assistant to President George W. Bush. Mr. Libby resigned his White House position in October 2005 after being indicted on felony counts of perjury, obstruction of justice and false statements relating to the case of the 2003 leak of CIA status of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame to reporters. In March 2007, Mr. Libby was found guilty of perjury and obstruction in the leak investigation. He is the highest-ranking White House official convicted in a government scandal since the Iran-Contra affair two decades ago. Mr. Libby wrote this novel, his first, when he was practicing law in the Washington DC area. We specialize in first novels.
