The recipe for a Devil's Brew is, greed, intimidation, sexual deviancy, organized crime, gambling, murder and a healthy dose of unchecked political power. This Novel delivers! "Counterfeit Governor" begins in the mid 60's when two men, Chris Armstrong and Grant Wade, survive the death and destruction of Vietnam. They both return home, one with a questionable Medal of Honor and a dream, the other with only a dream. They start their parallel political careers, one in Chicago, the other in Springfield. Ultimatley one will be the Governor of Illinois, the other the Speaker of the Illinois House. At the same time a young Chicago tough guy, BoBo Camberezi is forging his own destiny. BoBo, through intimidation and murder works his way to the top of organized crime in Chicago, then like a chameleon changes direction becoming a successful legitimate Chicago businessman. He takes a new name, Anton Curry, and leverages his way into politics, ultimately brutally intersecting the careers of both Armstrong and Wade. Grasping the coat tails of both Armstrong and Wade is a woman. Renee Wade is deep into her own struggle to the top. Using her insatiable drive for power and her unusual sex life, she aligns herself first with Grant Wade then ultimatley with Armstrong. Another woman, the illegitimate mulatto daughter of BoBo, Bijou Birdsong, emerges from the shadows. Bijou becomes her father's ultimate enforcer as he seeks political power. She is handsomely rewarded for her bloody work. Could events like these really happen? The answer is a resounding yes, and it could happen in any states capitol. Be prepared to become engrossed in this spider web of a story!
