    1. Veto by Ed Griffin ISBN 9781425114398 Published by Trafford Publishing 2009. Review by Chris PhillipsWithin this book, Griffin takes a subject he has some definite ideas about. This is political thriller at its best. The subject is the UN and the first female Secretary-General has been elected with the backing of the US.
