In this action thriller, Carson Brand is hired by a congressional candidate to work in his election campaign. As he gets deeper inside the organization, Brand learns that there is a side to the political process that the voters never see. Brand uncovers questionable tactics, shady operatives, and self-serving donors with agendas of their own. Brand’s involvement threatens their plan to rule the country, targeting him for elimination.
Set within the backdrop of demonstrations, protests, campaign rallies, and closed-door donor events, Dark Motive is a gritty, fast-paced thriller that dares to step outside of the accepted belief that the government is for the people and by the people. Although written prior to the current Antifa and Black Lives Matter protests, Dark Motive’s timely political setting is a rich backdrop for an action-packed tale of intrigue and deception, where self-serving politicians and powerful, rich donors manipulate the levers of power.
In this second novel in the Carson Brand series, Brand uncovers and exposes the secret workings of our political system. Exposed is the organized efforts transforming peaceful protests into the blind rage of the mob. Behind the empty promises and the smiling faces of candidates, despite the positive spin, the media presents us, the true power brokers behind the scenes are all driven by the same Dark Motive – Power and Control.
