Looks like a detective novel, doesn't it? I suppose it is, in a way. McGinness ticked off the former governor by moving next door to her to research the book. Brave man. I hear she's well armed.
McGinniss is best known for The Selling of the President 1968, about the marketing of Richard Nixon during the '68 campaign. He also wrote the true crime novels Fatal Vision, Blind Faith and Cruel Doubt.
The Rogue is due out in the fall.
