about

Introducing, Power Play.
A cancerous political suspense cocktail, based upon deceit, revenge and envy. Our young, handsome mayoral aspirant, Collier Winthrop, is recruited by a crusty old political boss, Al Caso, to upset the status-quo. He soon is faced with opposition from within and without. 1970's. Before. The House of Cards, there was Power Play.
Events occur that uncover a sordid police mentality, unveil the civil rights of the Flower Children being violated, ruin reputations and threaten the very lives of Collie's confederates.
Collie is met by an unscrupulous adversary, practiced in deceit; manipulated state investigative agencies and a contaminated police department.
How can Collie unravel plots unseen and unimaginable to survive even the earliest months of his political enterprise? The work portrays the depth and conflict of personalities. Politics is a business of expediency. Otherwise decent people justify immoral behavior in defense of careers. This a character driven drama, you are in the room.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well written **I received a copy of the eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review.** F. Ethan Repp takes the reader back to the 70’s—the 1970’s. This fiction is character and plot driven. Chairman Al Caso recruits Collier Winthrop to run for mayor in the upcoming election. What did Caso see in this young man? Was it simply name recognition? What we soon discover is that both men have integrity and moral fiber. Qualities sadly lacking in politics. The novel deals with many issues, including but not limited to corruption and social issues. I enjoyed the behind the scenes look at politics. The author keeps the reader interested and weaves a great story. The chapters are short and fast paced. I could not put the book down. I highly recommend this book. In my opinion, this is a novel that would translate to the big screen. “Democracy doesn’t just happen, it takes dedicated citizens continually fighting to preserve it.” Chairman Al Caso
