Shall We Tell the President?

Shall We Tell the President?

"Shall We Tell The President?" is a 1977 book by English author Jeffrey Archer.

In its original version, a plot to kill the president of the United States, Edward Kennedy, is foiled by an FBI agent working with the head of the FBI. A love story complicates the plot. The book includes descriptive details of official Washington, for which the author lists sources. After the success of Kane and Abel and The Prodigal Daughter, the new editions of the work featured Florentyna Kane (the first female USA president) rather than Kennedy as the president. In it Archer has Bill Bradley as Kane's Vice President and keeps making references to Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. In original version with President Kennedy, the Vice President was Dale Bumpers.

uspected Senators

Some United States Senators (both real-life and fictionals), Democrats and Republicans, were suspected as a part of plot to kill the President. Many of them just because they were present in D.C. at certain time.
