“The Shadow President,” by D’Antonio and Peter Eisner, will be published Aug. 28 by Thomas Dunne Books. According to the publisher, which announced the book Friday, Eisner and D’Antonio will portray the former Indiana governor as a man of longtime presidential ambitions under his image of “Midwestern nice.”
