Bravo! The upheaval in today’s political arena impacts our hero Brownie Terwilliger, as he enters a world far different from teaching. The interesting dialogue drives the story and contrasts old political names and Philadelphia landmarks with today’s raucous political climate!
-Lorraine Smith, National Sales Manager
Entertaining and admirable follow-up to John’s previous novel, Henny and Lloyd, Private Eyes. What he did to the crime scene in New York City, he does to the political scene in Philadelphia. No one enters politics in the City of Brotherly Love and comes out whole. The dialogue sparkles. The action reaches breakneck speed. Another bullseye!
—Kirkpatrick Sale, Author of Human Scale Revisited, The Conquest of Paradise, and other books.
I haven’t had as much fun reading about someone’s sad case in a very long time. Brownie tries hard, is pure, and aims to be the best. Going into Philadelphia politics, however, proves to be a monumentally wrong choice for anyone with those goals. The story moves quickly. The backroom shenanigans and the mindset of each character is spot on. The perfect read for the coming political season.
—Rebecca Lee, New York City Therapist and Counselor
Paulits returns with a compelling exploration of the political machine, complete with intrigue, dysfunction, and deception. It’s a tale of self-destruction, morality and power that warns of the corrosion of our democratic institutions and the price of greed. A clever page-turner that you won’t want to put down!
