The new book by ABC correspondent Jonathan Karl, “Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show”, Dutton, 282 pages, will describe the absolute fealty to Trump by is cultish loyalists during the last weeks of his presidency after the election was called for Joe Biden.  Like "The Truman Show"?

Karl maintains in this interview notes that our democracy depends on the fact that most people in power will act honorably.  What if they don't? 

It also gives another detailed account of what happened outside and inside the Capitol.

 James Doubek gives a blog post summary for NPR,

Chris Megerian of the LA Times maintains that the book compares Trump’s last days to those of Julius Caesar, with Miles Taylor being Brutus (I use that character name in my own screenplay, but with a different connotation).
