History repeats itself. Take a ride back memory lane to the 1970's to a tale of deceit, revenge, militaristic police, affected legal system and gay tragedy. This is the end of the Hoover era. This is deep in the death throes of the Nixon debacle. The author captures this era, while depicting a battle for the soul of the Republic, at the local level.
Enter young, handsome and charming Collier Winthrop. Collier is enticed by a crusty old Political Boss, Al Caso, to seek Public Office. Collie soon faces an unscrupulous adversary practiced in deceit, as well as several manipulated state investigative agencies and a contaminated police department.
Read as events uncover sordid police mentality and unveil violated civil rights of the Flower Children. Watch as reputations are ruined and these events threaten the very lives of Collie's confederates. Politics is a business of expediency, and otherwise decent people justify immoral behavior in defense of careers.
