Start the New Year right...buy BLINDSIDE!
"A fascinating glimpse inside a bruising election campaign replete with ambitious staff (and) odious candidates." Booklist
"In such an amoral world, nothing, it seems, can save the Ward campaign—unless of course Dev discovers that his opponent has fallen victim to the same blackmailer too. Perfect.
Another caustic indictment of electoral politics at its most American. No wonder it’s hard to muster much moral outrage when Dev, efficient as ever, identifies the blackmailer and the killer, who act just like everyone else."
"Shamus Award–winner Gorman’s absorbing third mystery...(analyzes) the good and bad--mostly bad--in current political campaigns...cynical, sharp witted."
"In the third Dev Conrad mystery, veteran Shamus Award winner Gorman does what he does best. His characters are never less than fully realized, his dialogue crackles, and the plot is clever and credible. Using his past experience as a political speechwriter, Gorman provides a fascinating glimpse inside a bruising election campaign replete with ambitious staff, odious candidates, and idealistic volunteers.
Praise for Dev Conrad STRANGLEHOLD
"The most frightening revelations in `Stranglehold' may be the unseemly truths it seems to tell about the status quo of our electoral process."
