"The novel follows a conservative talk-radio host as he careens toward a showdown between his personal beliefs and professional ambitions amid the backdrop of "the most important presidential election of our lifetime." As Talk opens, Stan Powers finds himself at a crossroads. Thanks to the driving influence of the right-wing media guru who calls his every shot, Powers is poised to take the last step in his unlikely ascent to the top of conservative talk radio. The only obstacle is his own conscience--but that has not stopped him yet. As the most influential voice in Tampa's crucial I-4 corridor that holds the key to the Oval Office, Powers is being pushed hard to play dirty, and the stakes are raised at every turn. His unscrupulous on-air attacks singlehandedly destroy the Texas governor's competitors in the Republican primary, and now he is in position to usher her into the highest elected office in the world. But to do so, he will have to take down the Florida governor and Democratic nominee who holds a dark secret and happens to be married to a key figure from Powers' past. Will he continue playing the game according to his cynical advisors, or listen to his own conscience and drop an even bigger bomb than expected?" --from publisher's web site.
