Reflecting our own world like a volatile funhouse mirror, Winter Warning lures us back to the 1980s, an era that could have been ripped right out of our most recent political upheaval. Isaac Sidel should have been vice president, banished to some far corner of the West Wing, but the president-elect has been forced to resign or face indictment for his crooked land deals—and ...more

Isaac Sidel has learned that being president of the United States isn't easy.

When numerous attempts on his life are made, he soon realizes that things are not quite what they seem. Despite the fact that his tenure as president is far different than those who have gone before him, he's determined in making a difference in both his life and that of the people he ...more

W e have a President Isaac Sidel. He has no political experience. But he has the skills he needs: he used to be a cop. Here in the white house he can’t trust anyone and he has to be alert to deflect physical danger besides the dirty machinations of political maneuvering.

The story begins with the president being under surveillance. He is shuffled into rooms that have more bugs than a greasy spoon on a truck route. His chief of staff, Ramona Dazzle hates him and reigns from a palatial suite in the

A president armed with a Glock…

My thanks go out to my contacts at Pegasus Books, Iris Blasi, Katie McGuire, and Maia Larson, for my copy of this book! Rock on!

Isaac Sidel is currently POTUS. He comes from the rough streets of New York where he served as Police Commissioner and later Mayor. He has a smashmouth way of dealing with problems, and he intends to continue this as leader of the United States.

But the Democrats want him reigned in, and all efforts to make the improvements that he wants en

Winter Warning is not my first Sidel novel. Blue Eyes introduced me to Sidel who had fallen from grace due to a corruption scandal. While I haven't read the books in the series between Blue Eyes and Winter Warning, Sidel came right back to life for me the minute I opened the page of this final book in the series.

Raw, edgy, humorous, and action packed, you know you can expect the unexpected from the street cop who winds up Commander in Chief. The reader can't help in some ways draw parallels to o

Winter Warning by Jerome Charyn
First book I've read in this series and it's the final one. Wish I had read from the very first book. A lot to me didn't make sense til towards the end.
Characters were introduced by the bundles as things were being brought into the plot.
Reminds me a lot of the Last Survivor a story on TV where a man was pushed to take over for the president who died in a white house bombing.
So much, as in that show were brought forth in this book and took it to the next level as we

Short, clipped sentences. This was a lot of work to read. I finished it, but will not read another on purpose.
