A prototypical child of the sixties, Senator Reuben Castle coasted through his early life on a cloud of easy charisma, leaving behind more skeletons than Arlington: a highly questionable Vietnam record, an abandoned wife, and worse. Now, two decades later, his greatest dream is within reach. But his personal history is about to become his political epitaph--unless he takes the direst of measures to protect himself.

From William F. Buckley Jr.--nationally bestselling author and one of the keenest political minds of our time--comes an ingenious blending of satire and suspense, the riveting tale of an all-too-recognizable presidential candidate and the dark shadows cast behind him.

Industry Reviews

"Mr. Buckley's wry humor often takes aim at the left...And descriptions throughout are pitch- perfect" -- Wall Street Journal

"A penetrating meditation on change, complication, and life's contingency" -- New York Sun

"like-minded readers will chortle over [Buckley's] satire of boomer politicians' mores." -- Publishers Weekly
