Written by FC Etier

Genre: Political Thriller

Until the end of the month


Just as retired G-man John Hixon recovers from wounds incurred from a security detail in which he saved the life of billionaire investor Julian F. Thibaut, Thibaut calls him again.

This time, his talents, intuition, and experience are put to the test as he attempts to protect seven of Thibaut’s friends while investigating a murder. In this, his second novel, FCEtier brings eight new characters into play along with several from his previous novel, The Tourist Killer. 

Hixon and company, along with his loyal K-9 corps, must defend their home turf as they seek the truth behind international conspiracies and encounter the seat of ultimate power -- the puppeteers who control the world’s finances.

Hixon and company discover that those same powerful forces who control the world’s money also control the destinies of those who oppose them. FCEtier takes readers on a breathless and perilous trek through the jungles of politics and the palaces of power.

Here's what

Fans are saying


As someone who has an avid interest in espionage, intrigue, conspiracy theories, true crime, political debacles, I am always interested to see what F C Etier is going to write next.

I am hooked on The Barry-Hixon Conspiracy series. If you read the first in the series, The Tourist Killer, you will know who the Barry and the Hixon of the Barry-Hixon Conspiracy series are. You will also know who Rosemary Woods is, otherwise she may not be who you think.

Mr. Etier is an accomplished photographer, and you can possibly tell this by the way he writes his scenes. I can imagine his mind seeing these scenes as photographs and recording the atmospheric details on paper for the reader to enjoy--snapshots in time.

I highly recommend it for your political-thriller fix. The Hitchcock-ian touches are nice and did not go unnoticed.



I've always been leary of sequels, having been burned a few times. After reading last year's The Tourist Killer by FCEtier, I had high hopes for a follow-up, but at the same time worried it wouldn't measure up to the original in feel, emotional texture or style...

This installment happily matches my anticipation!

The Presidents Club is filled with enough assignations, assassinations, double- and triple-crosses, and dirty political maneuvering to keep its readers riveted.

Like its predecessor, it features a female character whose ethics are questionable, but who isn't afraid to act on her beliefs. It is a quick, enjoyable read and a terrific break from the mini-dramas of our daily lives.
