Synopsis

First-hand witnesses quickly shape  Peril to become a classic Washington study. Readers find themselves ushered into Trump’s White House, Biden’s White House, the workings of the 2020 presidential campaign, the Pentagon, and Congress.

The intrigue bubbles up from previously unpublished narratives about covert missions, transcripts of private talks, diaries, emails, meeting minutes, and other personal and public materials.

As he navigates through a bitter and inactivating partisan divide, it’s also the first look at Biden’s presidency as he confronts the most difficult challenges of his life. The one-two punch: the ongoing deadly pandemic and millions of Americans suffering from soul-crushing economic hardship,

The danger is heightened by previously unpublished information from covert missions, transcripts of private talks, diaries, emails, meeting minutes, and other personal and public materials that convey a previously unpublished narrative. As well, it’s the first look at Biden’s presidency as he confronts the most difficult challenges of his life: the lingering deadly pandemic and millions of Americans suffering from soul-crushing economic hardship, all while navigating through a bitter and debilitating partisan divide, an increasingly dangerous world plagued by threats and the looming, dark shadow of the two previous presidents. “We have so much to do in this winter of danger,” President Biden remarked on the eve of his inauguration, which was marred by a worrisome security scare and the prospect of domestic terrorism. “We have so much to accomplish in this winter of peril,” he said. Peril is a fascinating tale about the end of one administration and the beginning of another. Bob Woodward’s trilogy about the Trump presidency began with Fear, continued with Rage, and treks further with Peril.
