A Political Thriller by G.A. Beller
In 1994, a freak traffic accident killed a family of six young children when their van was struck by a semi-trailer driven by a man unqualified to operate such a vehicle. The truck driver had bribed an employee of the Illinois Secretary of State's office in order to procure his commercial license.
The tragic accident, and resulting exposé of corruption and scandal that followed, forever changed the course of American history. It paved the way for the transfer of power to a Democratic gubernatorial candidate after decades of Republican dominance, and opened doors for one ambitious young attorney who aggressively plotted an accelerated rise to the White House.
NOT BLACK AND WHITE puts the reader inside the campaign offices and smoke-filled back rooms where political deals are made. Fiction is intertwined with fact as Beller introduces the reader to a cast of characters who may appear familiar to anyone who ever read a headline or watched cable news and talk shows across the country.
“Some of the people and dialogue may be fictitious, but the corruption known as the ‘Chicago Way’ is all too real,” said Dick Simpson, University of Illinois Chicago professor and co-author of Corrupt Illinois. “This novel provides an inside look on how the deals are made and the laws are broken. It is a must read for anyone who cares about politics and government.”
Others who received ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) were equally impressed with Beller’s debut novel and posted five star reviews on Amazon: “…an entertaining blend of fact and fiction,” “…this book grabbed me from the start,” “…kept me guessing at every turn,” “…absolutely could not put it down,” “…a lurid tale of power swaps and pay to play.” “…Mr. Beller hits a home run his first time at bat.”
“The response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Beller, a self-professed political junkie who enjoyed a long and lucrative career in the investment industry before diving into his true passion of storytelling. “I’m extremely flattered by the words of praise.”
