Synopsis: After a chilling threat against his young son, Senator Nick Schlafer struggles with unseen enemies, probes his teenage daughter's death under suspicious circumstances, and uncovers the dark underside of Washington politics and the horror of power gone awry. Reprint. NYT.

From Booklist: This intricately webbed mystery stars a Pennsylvania senator who combines his political hobbyhorse, the legalization of drugs, with his personal investigation into the suspicious demise of his teenage daughter, Lore. Senator Schlafer springs into action when his son admits hiding some of the daughter's papers, further obscuring the killer's identity: is it the mobster worried that legalization will destroy his lucrative narcotics trafficking? Corrupt elements in the feds' war-on-drugs bureaucracy? Is the murderer connected with Schlafer's own family, a history of which Lore was compiling when she died? The papers contain clues about her life that vex Schlafer until his recovery, late in the game, of her diary, which incriminates her killer. The diary makes the case against the perp, who then commits suicide. Though the dialogue often is overdone, the story's essentials technically fit together snugly by the end. Clearly, New York Times book reviewer Lehmann-Haupt is an able mystery writer, but he should probably keep his day job before going at it full time. Gilbert Taylor

Book Condition: Good. spine creases; wrapper edgewear; bookseller stamps on inside front wrapper and on title page. ***STORY LINE: While fishing in a stream that runs through his Virginia country retreat, U.S. Senator Nick Schlafer reels in a ventriloquist's dummy that bears a chilling resemblance to his young son. Schlafer lost his teenaged daughter to an apparent drug overdose only the year before. Now the good senator is about to introduce a piece of legislation that will change the face of America--by decriminalizing drugs. It's a bill that could make a man a lot of enemies. And Nick Schlafer doesn't believe in coincidences. Bookseller Inventory # PT007629
