Lucy Burton is sitting on the biggest political story of the year. It's uncomfortable. Deke Kipling is hunted by militant feminists and strangely impotent men's rights group. He needs a vacation. Both get what they ask for - and hard.
The media is scrambling for access to a well-armed political three-way as a sex-pot evangelical and an oily congressman scramble for Mississippi's newly vacant senate seat. And is the "Old Bear of the Senate" planning to take on American's unstable tycoon-cum-president? Or is he a latter-day Guy Fawkes, planning to blow the whole thing up?
HAINT PUNCH is a cocktail of sleazy kingmakers, victim dealers, hashtag crusaders, dateless nymphomaniacs, and bourbon-soaked aristocrats. Topical and hilarious, touching a deep and widespread feeling that we must cry for the current state of affairs, or have a stiff drink about it.
