Great short story by an author that knows the genre
Michael Bussa does an amazing job at writing short stories. I have read several of them and always find the stories roam around in my mind long after the last page is closed. This tale is intriguing, and I found the President, a man who demands loyalty and has a secret agenda, strangely familiar. However, this story takes place in the sixties, not the present, but no matter the timing, a wrong man elected will always happen. The premise of the story is interesting and one I am sure a lot of leaders have thought about. I would have liked this short story to be a bit longer because it feels more like a novel than the author’s usual twisted ending stories, but that said, this is one to grab and savor.
