Sobre o livro
TheReconstruction Of Walter Pigg picks up whereThe Deconstruction Of Walter Pigg leaves off, pitting Walter against powerful new enemies as he recovers from the emotional and physical defeats that almost took his life. With his body not yet healed, he finds himself in the unfortunate position of winning an election he had not meant to win.
Tipton Palo is a prominent attorney with his eyes on the governor's mansion, but first he needs to build a political resume. Becoming mayor of Hayes was supposed to be a stepping stone, but the voters betrayed him. His only option now is to destroy the man who stands in his way.
Perry Stubbs controls everything he touches. The names he has in his secret book allow him to operate his illegal gambling enterprise with impunity. Walter Pigg's election is a nuisance he thinks he can manage. His only concern is keeping Palo in line, but Palo soon proves unmanageable, forcing Stubbs to take action.
Roger Pigg is Walter's younger brother. A drifter who has never settled down to anything. His sudden appearance puts Walter on edge. When Tipton Palo lays a trap for Walter, it is Roger who steps into it with both feet.
Mayor Pigg's immersion into politics is unintentional. The outcome is unavoidable.
