Summary "This portrait of Washington super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff, from his early years as a gung-ho member of the GOP political machine to his final reckoning as a disgraced, imprisoned pariah, confirms the adage that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. A tale of international intrigue involving Indian casinos, spies, sweatshops, and a mob-style killings, this is a story of the way money corrupts our political process"--Container
