But Grace is still haunted by a tragic mistake buried deep in his past, and his integrity will be put to the test in this most brutal of political contests, in which nothing in his past or present life is off-limits. Depicting contemporary power politics at its most ruthless, The Race takes on the most incendiary issues in America's culture wars: racism, religious fundamentalism, gay rights, and the rise of media monopolies with their own political and economic agendas.
As the pressure of the race intensifies, culminating in a heated showdown at a deadlocked party convention in New York City, Grace must come to terms with his presidential ambitions and decide just how much he's willing to sacrifice in order to achieve them.
