While fishing, Senator Nick Schlafer reels in a dummy that looks like his young son. He had lost his teenaged daughter to a drug overdose only the year before. Now, the senator is about to introduce a piece of legislature that will change the face of America--by decriminalizing drugs. It's a bill that could make a man a lot of enemies.

User Review  - sonyainf - LibraryThing

This book was ok, but a bit complicated. A senator trying to legalize drugs finds out a trusted family friend is involved in the senator's daughter's death and his son's kidnapping. Was a slow-moving book, not very intense. Read full review

Review: A Crooked Man

User Review  - Erich Sysak - Goodreads

The first 150 pages were promising although I was concerned about the ridiculous nature of the clues left behind. When I got to 195 the book completely fell apart and I had to put it down. Read full review
