Synopsis: Fully Revised, with a new Epilogue
(Previously published as Heist)

A riveting tale of our time: an inside-Washington drama driven by powerful personalities and the toxic mix of money and power

An absorbing expose of lobbyist Jack Abramoff, a one time B-movie producer who worked alongside public relations whiz Michael Scanlon, an ex-aide to then House Republican whip Tom DeLay, to corrupt public officials and defraud four casino rich Indian tribes of almost $25 million. A five-year federal investigation into Abramoff’s misdeeds has turned into the largest influence peddling probe of the last decade and so far led to the convictions of twenty lobbyists, Hill staffers, Bush administration officials (including Steve Griles, the former number two at Interior) and former Representative Bob Ney (R-Ohio).

Boasting a cast of characters and close Abramoff allies like anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed, Casino Jack is a cautionary tale about the seemingly endless ways that lobbyists and campaign cash can buy powerful friends and influence Washington policymaking.

About the Author: Peter H. Stone, a writer for the National Journal, was one of the first reporters on the Abramoff story and has been following it closely since it broke in 2004. He has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Atlantic Monthly, and the Boston Globe. This is his first book.
