Mike Ford was following in his deadbeat father's footsteps, embarking on a young life of crime, when he turned himself around and worked his way into Harvard Law School.

Their specialty: pulling strings and peddling influence for the five hundred most powerful people inside the Beltway, the men and women who really run Washington—and by extension the country, and the world.

Quickly pulled into a seductive, dangerous web of power and corruption, Mike struggles to find his way out. But how do you save your soul when you've made a deal with the devil?
