From the back of the book:
“On the eve of announcing his run for Congress, a charismatic Chicago politician causes a deadly accident. Panicked, he frames his best friend, a good-hearted alcoholic, and flees the scene. As one man tries to pick up the pieces of his shattered life, the other embarks on a meteoric rise to political stardom. But when a dogged detective digs deeper into the case, the political superstar must decide just how far he is willing to keep his dark secret.”
Combining political intrigue, suspense and a unique set of personalities, this book is definitely a page-turner. I found this novel hard to put down and very much enjoyed it.
With fast-paced action and writing, the author brings to life a story of what one man will do to reach his goals … even at the expense of his best friend and his own integrity. His desire to please his wife and father-in-law, along with his own greed, destroys his law partner’s life. At the same time, he climbs the political ladder on his way to the Governor’s Mansion and, eventually, the White House.
Entertaining and inspiring, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat.
