9780061782244: Power Blind (Graham Gage Thrillers)

“[Gore] knows how to hook his readers from the opening line.”
—Richard North Patterson

Graham Gage is back!  The private investigator with an unfailing moral compass—whom Cornelia Read, author of The Crazy School, calls a “James Bond for grown-ups”—returns in Power Blind, another high-stakes political thriller from Steven Gore. The murder of a “fixer” for the wealthy and corrupt puts Gage on the trail of a conspiracy that threatens American democracy, an all-too-real nightmare deep-rooted in the heart of the federal government. Aside from superior writing, what sets this page-turning adventurer from the author of Final Target, Absolute Risk, and Act of Deceit apart from other edge-of-the-seat thrillers is the intelligence and astonishing authenticity author Gore—himself a former private investigator trained in forensic science—adds to the story. If you are blind to the corrupt inner workings of those in power in Washington, D.C., Power Blind will open your eyes.

From the Back Cover:

Power corrupts.

Power and money corrupt absolutely.

In Washington, Senator Landon Meyer—leading presidential candidate and pivotal voice in a divided senate—imposes his choices to fill two Supreme Court vacancies on the President. In San Francisco, Charlie Palmer—a specialist in burying the crimes of the political and financial elite—lies paralyzed by a gunshot. Linking the two is the senator's all-too-cunning brother—a federal judge secretly managing his campaign.

An hour before his death, Palmer reaches out to private investigator Graham Gage, a man he's both feared and admired, but his words remain choked in his throat. A funeral-day burglary of Palmer's office and a wife's plea for the truth about her husband's misdeeds plunge Gage into a morass of murder, corporate cover-ups, and corrupted justice that masks a political money-laundering scheme threatening to destroy not only our democracy, but all that is dear to Gage . . .
