Propelled by happenstance, Quincy becomes a pawn in high finance, political intrigue, the machinations of powerful Congressional leaders and the struggle for election to the most powerful position in the world, President of the United States.The enigmatic and unknown Quincy soon becomes much sought after by political leaders and intelligence agencies, both National and Foreign. He becomes a catalyst for dramatic changes in other people and the National psyche but seemingly is unaffected himself.

No longer can he be An Ordinary Man.
