Political reporter John Cotton finds his life in danger when he continues a colleague's search for corruption at the state capitol

HARPERCOLL

Ace reporter John Cotton is a fly on the wall -- seeing all, hearing all, and keeping out of sight. But the game changes when he finds his best friend's corpse sprawled on the marble floor of the central rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. Suddenly Cotton knows too much about a scandal centered around a senatorial candidate, a million-dollar scam, and a murder. And he hears the pursuing footsteps of powerful people who have something to hide ... and a willingness to kill to keep their secrets hidden.


Ace reporter John Cotton is a fly on the wall, seeing all, hearing all, and keeping out of sight. But the game changes when he finds his best friend’s corpse sprawled on the marble floor of the central rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. Suddenly Cotton knows too much about a scandal centered around a senatorial candidate, a million-dollar scam, and a murder. And he hears the pursuing footsteps of powerful people who have something to hide . . . and a willingness to kill to keep their secrets hidden.


John Cotton was a simple man with one desire: to write the greatest story of his life and have enough life left to read all about it.

Reporter John Cotton knows what to do when he finds a great story, but he is a little afraid when a big story begins to find him.  It starts when a fellow reporter is murdered and his notebook, filled with information about a tax scam, ends up in John's hands.  Not long afterwards, a body is discovered in John's car.  Then John's car ends up in the river, a bomb is found in his apartment, and his girlfriend drops out of sight.  It's up to John to unravel the mystery of the notebook and why anyone would kill for the information it contains.
