Publisher's Summary

A womanizing married senator, enjoying a tryst in his Delaware beach home with a beautiful black woman, discovers that his paramour has accidentally drowned. Aware of the scandal that could ensue and destroy his political career, the senator mounts a campaign of cover-up and cynical lies designed to deflect the potential damage. This suspenseful tale of adultery, media manipulation, and political chicanery has familiar overtones and exposes the dilemma faced by any public figure who chooses the path of dissimulation and lying to protect his or her career. This story mirrors today's headlines and provides insights into the dark netherworld of political manipulation.

Silly, slow, and boring

Unable to get through it. Narration was slow and choppy. Story line was over the top silly.
