You already know his name, but this is the first time you'll get to hear his fiction. Tom Abrahams, a reporter and television anchor, signs and discusses his debut novel, Sedition, at Murder by the Book. Sedition is a political thriller. As the action starts, the President of the United States is dead and no vice president is in place to assume control. With the country on the brink of a constitutional crisis, a small group of neo-patriots plan to violently overthrow the government and seize power for themselves. One woman stands in their way. The novel is based on the real-life Cato Street Conspiracy, an 1820 plot to overthrow the British government.
