Servants of Satan, False Brothers, and Other Opponents of Paul: Jerry L. Sumney
For Doug Fiore running for governor was better than death at the mob´s hands, if only the sex wouldn´t get in the way. Mob head Sal Tarantino doesn´t want big-time casino gambling to become legal in Rhode Island. His solution is to have the next governor comfortably in his pocket, ready to veto the legislation. That means calling in the debts owed to the mob by some of Rhode Island´s most prominent politicians, to clear the way for Doug Fiore, managing partner of the state´s largest law firm and soon-to-be reluctant gubernatorial candidate. Sal´s plan seems to be going smoothly until the primary draws closer, when Fiore´s opponent, a supporter of state-sponsored gambling and the leader in the polls, is gunned down in a bar along with the establishment´s bookie-in-residence. The public presumption, driven by columns in the Providence Herald in which Fiore´s ties to the family are laid out, is that the Tarantino family had reasons to want them both dead. Things get even stickier when the winner of the Democratic primary is the husband of one of Fiore´s law partners--who happens to also be one of his two mistresses. She learns with horror that her husband has a set of secret recordings taken in a hotel room where Fiore has met with both women. As the race draws to a close, the candidates are in a dead heat. Fiore, who now will stop at nothing to win, devises a scheme with both his mistresses to nail down his victory. The outcome is all in the sex. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Knezevich.

Award-winning author Chuck Greaves returns with the rollicking sequel to his acclaimed debut novel, Hush Money. US Senate candidate Warren Burkett has a history of marital infidelity. Three weeks before election day, Burkett comes to the aid of a beautiful green-eyed lady, only to find himself alone and naked in a stranger’s home from which a priceless painting is missing. As the resulting scandal threatens to tilt the election, the painting turns up in a most unexpected place - and so does a dead body. Hired to defend Burkett and unravel the deepening mystery, Jack MacTaggert must traverse a minefield of ruthless politicians, felonious art dealers, swarming paparazzi, the amorous wife of Burkett’s billionaire opponent, her mobbed-up brother, and a district attorney with an old score to settle. With the electoral clock ticking and the press following his every move, Jack’s investigation leads him on a roller-coaster ride through the lofty heights and gritty depths of Southern California, lending new meaning to the adage that all’s fair in love and politics. 1.

Harry Beltway, idealistic young conservative and grandson of a famous evangelist, has just come back from a two-years tour as a missionary when he is persuaded to join the campaign staff of Tim Duncannon, an arch-conservative television commentator who has set his sights on the Republican nomination for presidency so that he can build a barbed wire fence around America. As a candidate, Duncannon wows conservative fundamentalist Americans with his promises to protect them from Zulus and wetbacks and his reassurances that school prayer will someday return and abortionists will disappear. Harry must run interference when Duncannon´s campaign starts to fall apart after accusations of campaign bullying (Duncannon´s brothers are harassing and beating up his opponents), sexual misconduct (Duncannon is discovered having semi-weekly rendezvous with a mysterious blonde), and devil worship (Duncannon is caught channeling the spirit of Richard Nixon, his former boss). Along the way Harry starts a confusing love affair with a fellow campaign worker that turns out to be, literally, a drag. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Arte Johnson.
