Description

“People don’t often think of corruption or white-collar crap having an actual crime scene, but the Winner’s Circle was the scene of this one.”

Will O’Courtney is the ultimate insider. Having worked as an experienced contract lobbyist in Indianapolis for over a decade, he knows all the ins and outs of back-room deals and trading information. Shortly after his divorce is finalized, Will resolves to turn his life around, and just when he starts to think of leaving the winning course, he lands a contract with a national tobacco company that would change his life forever.

But when he discovers a scheme involving potential legislation for the monopoly of e-liquid tobacco products in the state, he finds out that malfeasance reaches the highest levels of government. Choosing to expose the seedy corruption behind closed doors in the Indiana Statehouse, Will becomes a whistleblower disguised as a lobbyist.

As he deals with suspect colleagues, wondering who he can and cannot trust, Will finds himself falling in love with a sprightly and spiritual young woman, who ultimately leads him to see and uncover the deep cracks along the Winner’s Circle and leave it for good.

Set against the backdrop of contemporary events, Michael Leppert's intelligent and chilling thriller will leave you wanting more.

Advance Praise

“Michael Leppert offers an informed and detailed account of the good, the bad, and even the ugly of government and politics and how it works. His insights, enlightened by his years in the Indiana political arena, reveal how fragile yet strong the democratic pro- cess is, and how the fight for good is often disadvantaged but can ultimately prevail.”

—ANDREW STONER, PhD, author, and professor

“If any of this has a ‘hint of truth’ it’s time for Hoosiers to start paying attention to what’s going on at the Statehouse. This grip- ping story should be a reminder that you don’t need to go to DC to ‘drain the swamp’, voters can begin in their own State Capitol/ Capital. I can’t believe this is happening. Living proof why one-party control is BAD. Alarming, shocking, and educational, but sadly, I’m afraid this is what’s happening in too many of our States.”

—JOHN GREGG, former Speaker of the Indiana House of Representatives

“A wry and tightly drawn portrait of how big money and special interests work in small, big cities across the Midwest.”
