This best advice ever for the presumptive nominee for President for Republican Party, Donald Trump, came from an anonymous source. Trump, the king of reality entertainment, will probably think Ford’s Theater is some kind of a show center in the US. It seems you don’t have to be necessarily smart to run for president.

On his first night in the White House, President Trump received a visit from the ghost of George Washington.

“Tell me, how can I best serve the American people as president?” Trump asked.

“Don’t lie,” Washington responded.

Trump shook his head and said, “Can’t oblige you there.”


The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson came calling.

“Tell me, how can I best serve the American people as president?” Trump asked.

“Listen to them,” Jefferson said.

Trump shook his head and said, “No can do.”


On the third night, the visitor was the ghost of Abe Lincoln.

“Tell me, how can I best serve the American people as president?” Trump asked.

Lincoln replied, “Go see a play at Ford’s Theater.”

Trump replied. “Now there’s advice I can follow.

The Killing Vote cover 2

In This Fast-Paced Political Thriller:

Washington politicians and U.S. healthcare executives are conspiring in a sinister cost-cutting scheme to legalize selective euthanasia for the seriously ill and dying, primarily for the poor and powerless.

If secret legislation can slip through the quagmire of Congress, it will diminish the annual deficit by billions, if not trillions; catapult corporate healthcare profits; and get an unpopular President re-elected.

What the powerbrokers don’t anticipate is an in-your-face, militant seniors advocacy group becoming suspicious and hires an aggressive, semi-retired investigative journalist to expose the behind-the scenes manipulations.

                                                The deadline:  Seven days.

Can Ted Yost stop the power brokers? Or will arson, attempted murder, blackmail, and kidnapping stop him?

                                Some Reviews of THE KILLING VOTE:

Ambition, greed, hypocrisy—and murder. Bette and JJ Lamb have taken the battle over medical care and fashioned a droll, lightning-paced political thriller with more plot twists than Washington has scoundrels. I thought of the great Ross Thomas as I hummed through the pages. Prepare to laugh–and get ripping mad.

David Corbett Writer & Teacher

 “The Killing Vote starts off with a bang, literally, and never lets up. Bette Golden Lamb and J.J. Lamb pull no punches in highlighting behind the scenes politics. Gripping.”

Cara Black Aimée Leduc Series

“…I don’t want to spoil anyone’s enjoyment of the book, so let me say that I locked all the doors and turned on all the lights in the house then stayed up all night reading.
