As election time nears, the forces that had fueled his lust for power suddenly begin to shift against him as both his wife and mistress threaten his carefully woven web of political success.

From inside the front cover: "Evelyn's threat reverberated powerfully. Wednesday morning dawned on a bedraggled Frankling Justice.
