Rubicon by Lawrence Alexander

This is a political thriller with an interesting premise.  What would happen if both presidential candidates were assassinated just weeks before the election?

Would the elections be suspended?  If so, for how long and who would decide when they would be held?

Prior to 9/11, I don’t think much thought was given to this scenario.  However once Rudy Guiliani suggested the New York mayoral elections be suspended so he could continue on as mayor, the country perked up and began to wonder what might happen in the event of another terrorist attack just prior to a presidential election.

If you read this book, you’ll likely come away with two possible answers to that scenario.
