This entertaining tale begins with Father Malrooney who on a third visit to Fairview Hospital for the Criminally insane is given a tissue box that contains a neatly folded manuscript – Jude’s story.


Jude Thaddeus was more than just an orphan. He was a man with high aspirations, intelligent, and extremely cunning within the business world. His path an extraordinary one, and one that would lead him to great men such as: Henry Kissinger, Nelson Rockefeller, George Wallace and Richard Nixon then to tango with wealthy organizations such as OPEC and scandals like Watergate.


His cool, calm demeanor a plus in his strategic plan to obtain 10 million dollars! With careful manipulation – the game is on. Jude’s sights are on the Presidency, although after years of preparation, something goes wrong.


The characters are vividly depicted, to the point that you become emotionally involved with them. Jude is certainly a fantastic and fascinating character.


I guarantee readers that from the moment you pick the Amendment, you will want to read more from this promising author. John J Fitzgerald’s writing style is smooth and well paced, pulling you into this saga that will leaving you wondering if it actually occurred. Excellent work Mr. Fitzgerald!
