Description

The place is Louisiana. The time is 1935. Huey Long, the Kingfish, former governor, current U.S. senator, and absolute dictator of this sweet Southern state, is riding high. He has become the most potent challenger to the Presidency, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt has good reason to fear the next election.Nathan Heller, president (and everything else) of the A-1 Detective Agency out of Chicago, has been lured to New York by Long's trusted adviser to present Huey Long with a birthday gift. The gift is a bulletproof vest, and the message is quite clear. Huey Long, with his indomitable quest for power, has made one enemy too many. Rumors of a plot to assassinate Long are circulating, so Heller is hired to uncover the truth.But saving Long's life may be the biggest challenge of Nathan Heller's career - if he himself lives that long. From his passionate and (he thinks) secret affair with the woman Long spurned to his plot to infiltrate Long's known enemies, Nathan Heller walks a dangerous line, and at any time could lose his already precarious balance. Nathan Heller finds, though, that nothing can keep Huey Long from his destiny, and suddenly, in a fiery burst of gunfire, he knows this is far from the end of his case. It's just the beginning.show more
