Shelfari edited the description of Senator Tuesday, August 14, 2012.
Jim O'Connor, the Republican senator from Massachusetts, is a handsome, charismatic family man—and a future contender for the presidency. But when O'Connor discovers his mistress brutally murdered in her apartment, he becomes a number-one homicide suspect of the Boston Police Department. With November on the horizon and his campaign spinning out of control, the Senator must hunt down a killer in the capital of lies—in order to salvage his battered political career...and his own life. REVIEWS: "An exciting mystery... Those with a taste for mixing politics and murder will savor the tale to the end." ~Booklist "Bowker is a smooth and sensitive writer." ~The New York Times Book Review "Senator actually is three stories in one: a political thesis, a murder mystery and a morality tale, each complementing the other in a skillful blend that is as contemporary as today’s headlines. Senator is timely, profound, and suspenseful." ~Cape Cod Times "A page turner... Well worth reading." ~Library Journal OTHER TITLES by Richard Bowker Pontiff Summit Replica Dover Beach ABOUT RICHARD BOWKER: Critically-acclaimed author Richard Bowker has published a variety of novels including science fiction, mysteries and thrillers.
