Inhaltsangabe

Born to a steelworker but harboring theatrical aspirations, Donald Cubbin grew up tempted by two careers. A Hollywood scout finally notices him, but Cubbin has already taken a job with the local union boss. He's always regretted that decision - especially now.

After decades climbing the ranks, Cubbin runs the show as the union's president. An election looms, and his opponent proves to be a dangerously loose cannon. Cubbin has made dozens of enemies over the years, and one has just engaged a hired killer. The fight for Cubbin's job starts with muckraking but could end in murder.

Kritikerstimmen

"A first-rate political novel of manners . . . the pace is superb, the plot brilliantly intricate, the dialogue crackling and witty." ( National Review)

Bad People and Worse People

In a way this book is quite depressing: there is not a single good, positive character within its story arc. It comprises bad people who steal elections and worse people who step lives. The story is so depressing that it must be realistic ...

What is rather captivating is the performance of Brian Holsopple: just the right mix of hard-boiled and weary. Perfect for this story about ... people.
