Description

Power corrupts.

Power and money corrupt absolutely.

In Washington, Senator Landon Meyer--leading presidential candidate and pivotal voice in a divided senate--imposes his choices to fill two Supreme Court vacancies on the President. In San Francisco, Charlie Palmer--a specialist in burying the crimes of the political and financial elite--lies paralyzed by a gunshot. Linking the two is the senator's all-too-cunning brother--a federal judge secretly managing his campaign.

An hour before his death, Palmer reaches out to private investigator Graham Gage, a man he's both feared and admired, but his words remain choked in his throat. A funeral-day burglary of Palmer's office and a wife's plea for the truth about her husband's misdeeds plunge Gage into a morass of murder, corporate cover-ups, and corrupted justice that masks a political money-laundering scheme threatening to destroy not only our democracy, but all that is dear to Gage . . .
