The Lyon Sleeps is a fast-paced novel of political history from 1968 to 1972 as told by a Republican campaign manager who knew the players at the Chicago Democratic Convention.
Splashing with feeling and sensitivity, we follow Bill Evert from the gang-ridden Chicago streets to the deal streets of Washington. He was a young man greatly admired, yet his dignity lay less in his power than in that certain full expression, a comforting expression that beckoned not begged. He loved deals, nice big fat deals with careless creatures of winter. But, confident people are easy for Jennifer McCoy, who closed her high breed ideals for his style of aggressiveness. She envied him and his affair with Snow White, a woman whose innocence was arrested by a darkened siren of twisted fates. Sara Jacobs, a Treasury agent abandoned a hard-core existence and became Bill's conscience. Concession was laced in her smile, a smile spilling with anger, more than angerrevenge. Senator North was convinced Bill belonged in DC particularly after Bill learned the truth about a Cuban alien murdered by North's stooge.
Factually, Evert arranged the Republican's 1972 National Convention and a Gospel convention of 20,000 in LA, while collecting champagne contributions for a President soon to be exploited by guilt and brought down by virtue. Bill's payoff was to be heard through three decades of history.
