Irving Wallace Special #1: The Man

In the largely forgotten genre of "not tremendously exciting political thrillers with largely unrelated and mildly sexy covers" comes this tale of the first black US President.

Incidentally, this was adapted into a movie in 1972 starring James Earl Jones and as such was the subject of THIS amazing review by Vincent Canby (edit: sadly long since put behind a paywall) which I recommend reading even if you have no plan to ever see the film, it's just a great bit of writing.
