Convicted for the murder of a judge’s son, Darius McReele is exonerated due to the efforts of investigative reporter Rick Dayne. Before long, thanks to the support of political power brokers, Darius finds himself running for senator with Rick as his campaign manager. Featuring a powerful cast that includes Chris Butler and Eric Stoltz, this dramatization casts a keen eye on the justifications people make for their actions in pursuit of their goals. Listeners will be seduced by Butler’s charismatic performance, his Darius is sharp, perceptive, and always seems to know something that others don't. As Rick, Stoltz acts as his earnest foil, a skeptic who finds himself unable to resist Darius’ charms.
This rivelting tale of truth, lies and honor premiered in New York in 2005.

"Intriguing....keeps audience members constantly off-balance in their attempts to come to easy solutions on a range of topics including the death penalty, the credibility of political candidates, and media ethics. What is clear in McReele is how people use individuals, groups, and issues to get what they want." (National Catholic Reporter)
