“[Gore] knows how to hook his readers from the opening line.”
—Richard North Patterson
Graham Gage is back! The private investigator with an unfailing moral compass—whom Cornelia Read, author of The Crazy School, calls a “James Bond for grown-ups”—returns in Power Blind, another high-stakes political thriller from Steven Gore. The murder of a “fixer” for the wealthy and corrupt puts Gage on the trail of a conspiracy that threatens American democracy, an all-too-real nightmare deep-rooted in the heart of the federal government. Aside from superior writing, what sets this page-turning adventurer from the author of Final Target, Absolute Risk, and Act of Deceit apart from other edge-of-the-seat thrillers is the intelligence and astonishing authenticity author Gore—himself a former private investigator trained in forensic science—adds to the story. If you are blind to the corrupt inner workings of those in power in Washington, D.C., Power Blind will open your eyes.
