Synopsis: Moe Flynn, Diane Husted, and Joe Benedetti return from their adventures in “Victims of the Past” to investigate strange goings on around the special election called in NJ to replace US Senator Frank Lautenberg, who died while in office.
Private eye Joe Benedetti killed a couple of bad guys who came after him—and his hard reputation keeps other would-be troublemakers away. He never goes anywhere without his gun, and he has connections, both with some shady dudes and with the cops.
When Joe is offered a position as bodyguard for Ben Kupperman, a senatorial candidate, it sounds like the perfect job. Not too hard, no real stress, and easy money, or so he thinks.
But this U.S. Senate hopeful has pissed off contractors, union bosses, and teachers in the State of New Jersey with his corruption probes. And he’s somehow made one unlikely enemy; a beautiful blonde TV reporter named Janet Winn, who seems determined to show the candidate in the worst possible light. His opponent, on the other hand seems to be getting favorable press in spite of some questionable campaign contributions and shady acquaintances.
With all the enemies Kupperman has made, he needs protection from dawn till midnight. Joe takes the late shift, unaware that he’s heading straight into trouble, including two strangers who accost him in a parking lot late at night, and a firebomb thrown in the candidate’s headquarters by an unknown assailant. When the danger escalates, he recruits his investigator friend Moe Flynn to help to sort out what’s really going on with Winn’s vendetta and the mysterious attacks.
Together they find themselves sinking deeper and deeper into the ever more perilous Kupperman campaign.
With murder, betrayal, blackmail, payoffs, and a maelstrom of twists and turns, can they keep Kupperman alive until the election, and will he ultimately win the coveted senate seat? How will Moe’s romancing of Diane progress?
