A riveting novel of suspense and terror set in the dangerous world of high stakes politics.
A great political horror story.
Crusading TX lawyer Mitchell Dutton is running for the U.S. Congress and is a virtual shoo-in come November. But his opponent has different plans.
The opposition nominee, Shakespeare "Shakes" McCann, is an almost total unknown-a dark horse candidate with no past and no principles who has come out of nowhere to challenge Mitch Dutton. There is no weakness McCann will not exploit, no secret he cannot expose. He will lie to reporters and newscasters, alter photographs and circulate fraudulent documents. If all else fails, he will resort to violence. And no one is safe-not Dutton's friends, his colleagues, his beautiful, vulnerable wife...not even the leaders of McCann's own party. There is nothing the dark horse won't do to get elected.
A wonderfully frightening and surprising mystery. Frightening because it could be true.
Imagine Stephen King collaborating with Bob Woodward, and the result might be Dark Horse. A Political horror story
