Tom Pauley is a well-liked attorney in Durham, North Carolina, with all the right opinions but no political ambitions. He's the perfect vessel for the limping GOP in that state, who have their sights set on using Pauley to retake the Governor's mansion, and maybe one day, the presidency.
Mitchell Mason is the president-elect of the United States, a blue-blooded son of a senator who has finally surpassed his father's achievements, and done it without compromising his own morals. He runs the White House with a personal touch, desperate to set himself apart from his predecessor John Hammermill, and duplicate none of the missteps of the previous administration.
Samantha Davis is a lawyer-turned-reporter, once again working her way up from the bottom in a cutthroat industry. She's determined and brilliant, and her dogged pursuit of a decade-old story could tip off a huge political scandal.
During the fervor of a campaign, all three are on a collision course that leads to the White House.
And when the prize is the United States presidency, the ends justify . . . THE MEANS.
