Summary :

Nothing stops Leo Lundatos from getting what he wants - not even a call girl murder scandal and a stretch in the clink for fraud and abuse. Planning to rebuild his power base with a run for alderman, the once powerful congressman asks Jimmy Flannery to run for ward leader of the famous Tenth: the Mayor's Ward.

Jimmy's not so sure this step up the ladder is a good idea. Already new pals and old enemies are crawling out of the woodwork. And even before his family convinces him to go for it, he's got his hands full. A gaggle of militant right-wingers is up in arms to ban "offensive" books from the public schools. If they're outraged now, just wait till they get a load of Jimmy's potpourri campaign staff: Sada Spisselman, his aunt and a renowned socialist, is set to run the show; lipstick lesbian Janet Canarias, his closest ally, is to be chief strategist; and ex-cop Mabel Halstead will be his right-hand man. In fact, Mabel was a man before her sex change. The final ingredient is principal backer Maggie Lundatos, Leo's gorgeous, soon-to-be ex-wife, who's got a thirst for power and an eye for Jimmy. All this on a ticket in a largely Catholic ward.

Jimmy's feathers aren't easily ruffled, but when bullets start flying, the committeeman flies into action. Soon he's searching for a killer in the middle of a rough-and-tumble Windy City campaign. And entering a political dark alley that leads to a secret that could shatter Jimmy's world.
