Juvenal's Lament (A Political Fable)
Corruption and crime abound in the Nation's Capital, Washington, D.C. More
Corruption is alive and well in Washington, D.C. - Behind the curtain of secrecy.
Carefully concealed from the public is the greed, avarice and power-grabbing that motivates politicians.In brief: Politics as usual.
Tommy Sawyer, the man one critic hailed as “Holden Caulfield with a political science degree,” is back. Elected to serve out the term of a dead Congressman, Tommy is chosen to oversee the impeachment of the Chief Justice of the United States. Along the way, he encounters the entrenched greed and corruption in Washington that’s now undermining life in the rest of the country. Murder, terrorism and unrestrained “politics” are the order of the day, and the United States teeters on civil war. Only a single, charismatic man stands between the country and chaos.
Juvenal’s Lament, set in the very near future, is a cautionary tale about the misuse of power and the widening chasm between Washington and the public.
“Juvenal’s Lament neatly juxtaposes the personal ambitions and life of Tommy Sawyer against a crescendo of legal and political events that could lead to either all-out disaster or new beginnings; all resting firmly on . . . how power is ultimately acquired and wielded.””"D.
