Albuquerque Mayor Tomas Zamara understands that politics is like playing football on a muddy field. If you don’t get dirty, you’re not giving your all. But dirty politics is not his style.
It's 2008 and the presidential campaign is all coming down to New Mexico. Albuquerque Mayor Tomas Zamara, charged with delivering five electoral votes for John McCain, understands that politics is like playing football on a muddy field. If you don’t get dirty, you’re not giving your all. But dirty politics is not his style.
The Democrats' Barack Obama is drawing adoring crowds with his uplifting speeches, and Zamara’s GOP bosses are pressuring him to do “whatever it takes” to win.
Challenging him every step of the way is fierce, young Sierra León of the Democracy Project, who calls on him to listen to his better self and reject his party’s unsavory practices.
But if only his life were as simple as politics. Mayor Zamara is also grappling with being a suspect in his wife’s murder; fending off his father, who wants to rescue his failing business with city money; and satisfying his demanding new woman, the radiant and volatile Tory Singer, who may not be who she says she is.

Tomas Zamara, the Mayor of Albuquerque, New Mexico, finds himself embroiled in politics and family drama. His choice of the political high road as chair of the New Mexico McCain presidential campaign isn't the same as his handlers. Then his position that city business doesn't mix with family business enrages his father and brother. Did I mention his wife disappears after some shady deals, and is found murdered years later? What about Tory, his new love interest, is she for real? John Byrne Barry pulls it all together in this well crafted Indie. You won't want to miss a word of this one.
