Forlagets beskrivelse
Washington DC Mayor Wendell P. Wastson's legacy comes undone when a woman turns down his advances and he sets his burly security guards on her. Evelyn Boone accidentally witnesses the murder and narrowly escapes as Watson orders her execution. So begins a wild goose chase across four states, with Watson's guards in hot pursuit of Evelyn.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
Washington DC has never seen a mayor quite like Wendell P. Watson - coke snorting, contract skimming, Shakespeare quoting, womanizer, who has somehow wielded his power for three consecutive terms, and is working on a fourth. His re-election platform contains many outrageous plans, including a plot to make Washington D.C. the 51st state. But one night, Watson's legacy comes undone when he invites Sharon Scott up to his room for a drink. Things go too far, too fast, and after Sharon clobbers Mr. Mayor with an ashtray, he sets his burly security guards on her. Evelyn Boone has been sent on a secret mission to steal Watson's paperwork for a major city contract, and accidentally witnesses Sharon's murder. What started off as a simple assignment turns into an extremely complex situation when she is spotted. Watson orders the guards to kill her too. Evelyn narrowly escapes, and a wild goose chase begins across four states. Evelyn attempts to outsmart Watson's men in a deadly game of hide and seek, and along the way ends up entangled with the FBI, a hit man, and even a well-known actor.Very loosely inspired by actual events, debut authors Lee Hurwitz and Tim Treanor have written a darkly hilarious political satire that irreverently dissects a mayor's misguided nature and ultimate fall from grace.
