Publisher Description

For court clerk Ambrose Merrion, life was about people taking care of one another. For Danny Hilliard, politics was a matter of acquiring the power to make sure that society did just that. With Merrion shrewdly managing Hilliard’s campaigns as a rising politician, the two friends made an excellent team.

But trouble starts brewing when Merrion unexpectedly inherits ill-gotten gains from a corrupt predecessor, enabling him to indulge with Danny in the finer luxuries. To Merrion’s dismay, Hilliard begins to show a streak of mischief that quickly flares into a scandal. And a federal prosecutor on a mission believes he has found an the perfect way to put Hilliard in jail—forcing Merrion to incriminate him. For the rules have changed while the friends weren't looking, and what was once just common wickedness has become a felony.

Quotes

  • “The story unfolds…through superb dialogue that reveals character in a far more complex and interesting way than does an omniscient narrator…As always, his characters are so real they spare us the task of willingly suspending disbelief.”

    - New York Times Book Review
  • “For twenty-five years, Higgins’ novels have been built on this one simple principle—that you learn the most about people by listening to what they say and how they say it. His books move in sweeping, slowly inclining curves, like a highway gradually winding its way up a mountain, moving in one direction without ever seeming to be pointing there.”

    - Booklist
  • “With the sociological grasp of Trollope and Thackeray, but with a distinctly postmodern sense of architecture…[Higgins] has produced his most ambitious, and infuriating, book in years.”

    - Kirkus Reviews
