About the Book
Gov. Frank F. Cotton is a strong contender in the quest for the White House, but now one dirty secret threatens to unravel his ambitions. His son, insane with grief, has removed the corpse of his bride from the cemetery and disappeared.

In the red hot days of the presidential primaries, such a scandal could spell ruin.

Enter Thomas Cashman, a mercenary with a world of secrets of his own. In his mission to find young Calvin Cotton, Thomas will enlist the aid of washed up novelist Billy Baylor to help understand the anguish that would drive a man to such madness.

By the time the search is over, there will be dirt on everybody's hands.


DIRT: AN AMERICAN CAMPAIGN by Author Mark LaFlamme is a well-crafted work of entertaining and thought provoking fiction. The foundation of the story, unique to say the least, causes the reader to examine multiple personal conflicts within the storyline while providing a perspective on the behind closed doors dirty tricks and win at all cost mentality that is the political power grab. LaFlamme has managed to build tension, without gratuitous shock value. His characters are strong, though saddled with weaknesses and tragic pasts. The pace is crisp without sacrificing needed detail. There is nothing predictable about DIRT, including the conclusion and THAT makes for a great story. Well done Mr. LaFlamme.
