One of my favourite thriller writers, Ross Thomas delivers a sly, slick, satirical tale around an old union president facing an election against a young challenger and the corruption, machinations, power plays and dirty tricks that unfold, all the while an assassin moves in for the kill. An absolute classic. ( )
