Summary
Exposing governmental corruption, conspiracy, and murder has garnered plenty of attention for Christian Gillette, young chairman of the New York private equity firm Everest Capital. Now his reputation has been noticed beyond the boardrooms of high finance--by powerful people with potentially devastating agendas. Christian's own attention is on Las Vegas, where he means to open a new casino and launch an NFL franchise--but the mob makes it clear that Christian will have to pay if he wants to play. Meanwhile, Senator Jesse Ford is the favorite to make history as the first black president, and the man he wants beside him in the race for the White House is Christian Gillette. But a Texas mogul with billions to burn has another fate in mind for Christian: to be part of a shadow organization, powered by wealth, that has manipulated American history for generations.--From publisher description
