Lethal Ambition

by Michael Swiger


Power. Murder. Corruption.

Election night. Crusading African American lawyer, Marcus Blanchard, disappears on the verge of unseating entrenched Congressman Julius McGee. As the final vote tallies come in, Marcus is found crouching over the dead body of his girlfriend. Charged with Aggravated Murder, he turns to the only man he can trust.

Brilliant but struggling with the ravages of age, Edward Mead takes the case while nursing his wife through the merciless treatments for stage-four breast cancer. Mead is thrust headlong into Cleveland’s gritty underbelly, colliding with drug dealers and thugs, race riots and protests, and an all-pervasive political corruption that enslaves its citizens in poverty while sowing the seeds of division and hatred.

John Grisham meets Agatha Christie in this fast-paced legal thriller murder mystery that grapples with the urban unrest in communities across the country. This book will leave you exhilarated and entertained, but most of all it will make you think.
