About the Author

John David Bethel spent a career in politics and government where he was Senior Adviser and Director of Speechwriting for the Secretary of Commerce; Chief Speechwriter to the Secretary of Education; and served as press secretary /speechwriter to members of Congress. Life after public service found Bethel doing executive speechwriting and working with communications and public relations agencies. He currently lives in Miami with his wife and two very spoiled dogs and writes novels--when not consulting or writing speeches for corporate executives. Praise for Evil Town! David Bethel's "EVIL TOWN" is a page turner you will enjoy whether you are a Washington "insider" or just someone that enjoys a great story. His characters come to life as you wind through this story of intrigue, passion, betrayal and just plain egos too big to fit into the majestic high ceiling rooms of the Nation's Capitol. For those of us that have been there and lived the political life it is easy to attach the names of people we know and/or have known to David's characters. I think you will find that part of the fun when you read his book. Perhaps you will also pick up a little understanding of the high stakes poker played with your life and income by thousands of faceless bureaucrats and unscrupulous politicians who's only goal in life is re-election. "EVIL TOWN" great title and a superb read. Jim Ross Lightfoot MEMBER OF CONGRESS (ret) 1985 - 1997
