Two close friends, Mitch and Ray, best friends since childhood, embark together (but somewhat secretly) into the world of politics. Mitch, a popular (but troubled) Political Science professor and Ray, an ambitious (but naive) civil rights attorney, decide to team-up and make Ray the ideal politician. But along the way, they find out the hard way what Mitch has known for years and what Ray refuses to believe: The way politics actually works.
This novel explores the deep underbelly of the political process, the shattering of ideals, personal sacrifice, personal delusion, and the battle within all people of deciding between what is necessary and what is right – and what is neither, and what is both.
As both men struggle to maintain their morals, their principles, their ideals, and their friendship, they are challenged by conflicts new and old, small and large, personal and public.
