Prepare for edge-of-your-seat suspense in this Thriller Short.
In this Thriller Short by bestselling author Kathleen Antrim, the question is posed: Can murder be justified – even patriotic? Immediately following election day, the incoming First Lady plots the assassination of her husband, president-elect Izaan Bekkar. Throughout the campaign Bekkar kept a damaging secret from the electorate, one that could destroy America's democracy, and she's determined to prevent that from happening. But as the moments creep closer to Bekkar's swearing-in, surprising information comes to light – the kind that changes everything.
