Task: Concoct a plot for a novel about a draft-dodging president with a ready smile and a readier libido; a staunchly feminist, Ivy League-educated First Lady; and a political campaign funded by the suspiciously manipulable accounts of a Midwestern bank. Result: Primary Colors? Perhaps. Or you might barely have scratched the surface of Charles McCarry's darkly byzantine and wildly perceptive new novel, Lucky Bastard. McCarry rips the skeletons from Clinton's wide-open closet and clothes them with the slightly tattered grandeur of Camelot: his hero is John Fitzgerald Adams ("Jack"), who possesses an instinctual political genius and an unerring knack for charming voters while advancing his own interests. Jack also happens to believe that he is JFK's illegitimate son, and his march to the White House carries the aura of "divine right." Or is that Left? McCarry spins a labyrinthine tale of political influence driven by two maverick Russians who believe that the Communist Revolution "happened in the wrong country at the wrong time." They recognize Jack's talent and charisma and sponsor his rise to power in the hope of achieving tradecraft's coup de gr?ce: a Soviet pawn in the Oval Office. Perhaps the novel's greatest strength is its narrator, Dmitri, a cynical Russian whose dry wit and world-weary observations anchor the unabashedly excessive (and usually lubricious) machinations of agents, handlers, recruits, and just plain folks. Thanks mostly to Dmitri contemporary,fiction,literature and fiction,mystery thriller and suspense,political,spy stories and tales of intrigue,suspense,thrillers Spy Stories & Tales of Intrigue, Random House

John Fitzgerald Adams, known by the voters who love him as Jack, has good reason to believe he is the illegitimate son of JFK. His goal is the same as that of any Kennedy: to reclaim the presidency ... and enjoy as many women as possible along the way. But Jack, up from poverty, cannot make it to the Oval Office without help. He is approached by useful friends with mysterious ties to foreign powers. Jack also relies on a strong-willed wife, an ardent radical leftist who masterminds Jack's political moves while guarding against the threat that his wild libido will destroy his career. As Jack ascends to power, others who realize the truth about his connections try to stop him. But will anyone believe them? Lucky Bastard McCarry, Charles, Random House
