Two hard-nosed bosses scrap for control of America & rsquo;s largest union Born to a steelworker but harboring theatrical aspirations, Donald Cubbin grew up tempted by two careers. A Hollywood scout finally notices him, but Cubbin has already taken a job with the local union boss. He & rsquo;s always regretted that decision & mdash;especially now. After decades climbing the ranks, Cubbin runs the show as the union & rsquo;s president. An election looms, and his opponent proves to be a dangerously loose cannon. Cubbin made dozens of enemies over the years, and one has just engaged a hired killer. The fight for Cubbin & rsquo;s job starts with muckraking but could end in murder.
