Brief Synopsis

D.C. reporter Cal McCaffrey untangles a mystery of murder and collusion among some of the nation''s most promising political and corporate figures. Handsome, unflappable U.S. Congressman Stephen Collins is the future of his political party: an honorable appointee who serves as the chairman of a committee overseeing defense spending. All eyes are upon the rising star to be his party''s contender for the upcoming presidential race. Until his research assistant/mistress is brutally murdered and buried secrets come tumbling out. McCaffrey has the dubious fortune of both an old friendship with Collins and a ruthless editor, Cameron, who has assigned him to investigate. As he and partner Della try to uncover the killer''s identity, McCaffrey steps into a cover-up that threatens to shake the nation''s power structures. And in a town of spin-doctors and wealthy politicos, he will discover one truth: when billions are at stake, no one''s integrity, love or life is ever safe.
