Moses Wine thought he had put his interest in politics far behind him when he became a Los Angeles-based private detective. Sure, he'd once been an activist, but that had been during the Sixties. A lifetime ago...or so it seemed, before Lila Shea showed up on his doorstep. Lila was a woman who could have been the love of his life...had they remained together after their last night of passion in 1967. Nevertheless, she's back, and with a job for him; locate the chairman of the Free Amerika Party and convince him to end the smear campaign he's waged against her employer, Senator Miles Hawthorne, who's running for the presidency. But when Lila later turns up dead, politics become the last thing on Moses' mind...
