With his star-quality looks and magnetic personality, third-party gubernatorial candidate Joe Richmond makes quite an impression. Especially when he's found hanging naked and quite dead from a tree in his favorite campaign manager's backyard. Everything points to suicide: the rope around the neck, the stool he'd kicked over/ But Jake Samson and his partner, Rosie, are hired to prove otherwise. Politics - even the New Age politics of California's VIVO ecology party - is a game Jake prefers to avoid. But, when a trail or scandal and secret financing lead him deep into the candidate's private life, he discovers he's not the only in the game...he's playing for his own life.
Crack another case with Jake Samson.
