Desperate to keep Berzel in office, the Russians unleash a tsunami of disinformation, social media bots inundating America with fake stories, doctored photographs, testimonials from fictitious people, fabricated rumors, phony news. But Berzel's campaign keeps falling further and further behind.
What more devious measures will the Russians concoct to keep Berzel in the White House? Will they resort to murder?
Someone is killing people by hacking into their pacemakers and other life-saving devices. Are the Russians behind the seemingly-random deaths? Who is the voluptuous Russian woman sleeping with Berzel? Is she a spy? An assassin? Why are the FBI's hands tied when they want to investigate?
