A New Political Thriller: “Firing Politics” by Mike Winslow, is Available from Amazon
“Firing Politics” by Mike Winslow is a new book of fiction that explores the interweaving of crime and politics. The action takes place in the backdrop of the City of Los Angeles.
The book tells the story of Max Rudder, who was a professor until the day the dean summoned him and announced that: “enrollments were down.” Max finds himself out on the street after thirteen years. His wife, not being thrilled with his unemployment, decides to relocate herself and the children to her parents’ house across the country. In his despair, Max gets the idea he can be a detective. He has a friend who runs a detective agency, and he convinces the friend to take him on as a combination apprentice and gofer. On his first day on the job, Max, in self-defense, ends up shooting someone to death. A few days later he has to shoot someone else dead.
One of the men Max shot worked for a crime boss. The crime boss was so impressed with Max’s aptitude for killing; he offers Max the job to replace the employee he killed. There was no right of refusal. Max shows real ability in his new job. In a series of escapades, Max rises through the crime hierarchy. As his stature grows, he realizes that he can use some of this newfound power to change the world. An innovative program to help abused women and drug addicts begins. His organization, the Cyan Alliance, earns a reputation at thwarting blackmailers. The city power brokers recognize the noble deeds. They back Max for a political appointment in the city. As he fights to win membership in the city council, Max walks the line between legal and the illegal. The book dramatizes how good and evil (Yin and Yang) can exist side-by-side in a life experience. The protagonist, Max, seizes power in both halves (crime and government) and fights to gain control of his enemies.
