About the Book

A series of peculiar accidents resulting in the deaths of activist Members of the U.S. House and Senate stirs the interest of a U.S. Park Police detective who perceives a connection to these seemingly random events occurring across the nation. The strange deaths continue to mount as this determined federal employee mines the Washington fund raising scene attempting to connect a group of prominent lobbyist to these bizarre events. The cases are finally connected when the House Majority Leader is killed in an apparent hunting accident on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

The author introduces colorful characters focusing on issue politics, the Washington fund raising apparatus, and the calculating mind of a bitter and obsessed perfectionist who reshapes the Congress by ridding it of ideologues who interfere with his legislative interests.
