He promises major changes in government but all his ambitions are about to be threatened when a murder and rape is committed in white house when the president is on a holiday in his Connecticut ranch .All blame points to him when on the scene next day forensic experts find traces of his hair and nails on the murder victim. Yet he never murdered anyone.

What happened was that the killers colluded with three white house workers the hair stylist Marcus Ben, cleaner, Richard Norton and plumber Max Simons. The evidence strongly points to the president. But when the murder happens a black electrician Jimmy Jumper who happens to be in oval house surveillance room working late because coincidentally his bad drinking habit makes him be late for witnesses it work and he is repairing the lights in corridors.

strange story.
president framed for a murder. okay, sure. why not? the funny thing is, presidents are accused of murder all the time (hey, hey, LBJ. how many kids did you kill today?).

you certainly have a way with words. lots and lots and lots of words. maybe you should slow down and take a breath ever now and then try to present your story in a little more coherent manner. make things a little easier on the reader. i tend to be a very lazy and i want to be spoon feed when it comes to my reading. if it isn't a text book, it expect an easy read.

you seem to have some tools. you need to learn to use them more effectivly. pay closer attention to how you construct your sentences. when you do, i predict great things will happen.

john. john doe.
