Something's Rotten in the State of Massachusetts!
The roof of the newly constructed Big Dig Tunnel in Boston collapses and kills a woman motorist. The reverberations from this event shake the worlds of business, politics and organized crime.
Caleb Clarke's exciting noir thriller weaves together the stories of these worlds, represented by four powerful families who all live in the protected, gated community of Serpent Point just outside a famous town on Cape Cod.
There's MALCOLM O'MALLEY, the powerful U.S. Senator and scion of the famous political family that made the town of Winter Cove famous, who is gearing up for a run at the Presidency, despite all of his sexual secrets.
There's JOE BRUNO, capo of the most powerful organized crime family in New England, whose biggest problem may be his sixteen-year-old daughter Angela.
There's TIMOTHY REGAN, the aging band leader and entertainment impresario whose fabulous wealth allows his to indulge his sickest fantasies.
And there's TOM PYLE, owner of the international construction firm that built the Big Dig who is grooming his two sons to take over the business.
And the catalyst shaking up the worlds of these four men is JACK DUNNE, the coldly efficient 'fixer' Pyle hires to guide his company through the crisis, but who has his own agenda.
It's hard to believe so much evil can live in one gated community. Then again, this is Massachusetts we're talking about!
