In our tumultuous times everyone has a theory as to why bad things happen to so many good people. Most of these conspiracies are wildly ridiculous and serve only to produce more confusion. The new novel Purple State falls into a different category. Presented in story form is a heavily researched collection of facts that are dramatized for easy consumption. It continues a new trend towards educating the public through means of entertainment.
The Plot: A respected political operative is murdered while investigating the 2000 Presidential election. A group of wealthy Florida activists hire his college friend and now private investigator Edmund Morrissey to track down the murderer. Ed quickly discovers that his financiers have ulterior motives. Dragged back and forth by fervent partisans he fights the raging tides of propaganda with simple logic and ultimately withholds his decisions until all of the facts have been collected. The deeper he treads, the more of a target he becomes. Each conspiracy slinging character deposits some grain of truth in the sub-conscience of the only man who could piece together the boldest political crime in American history.
PURPLE STATE has a highly developed and sometimes complicated plotline that is a thirst quencher for anyone who loves witty dialogue and articulate counter arguments concerning current events. Purple State stands on a non-partisan platform suggesting that principles and solutions are far more important than the rancorous battle of polarizing ideologies. By stepping foot into a slew of wild theories it gives credence to the moral that no idea is too absurd to be heard but that only the tested few should be trusted as a foundation to hold our society together.
