‘Breach of Trust’ Tells Ripped-from-the-Headlines Tale of Government Corruption and Intrigue

I just finished reading this novel. It is excellent!  The specifics of the risks to the confidential informant, the legal ethics problems, and the means in which the federal government uses wiretapping, mail fraud, RICO, and honest services federal statutes to build a public corruption case (even for state government) are very well described and an integral part of the story. I voted for this novel for the Harper Lee Prize.

I read (well, listened) to this book on CD.  I highly recommend the audio version, helps to add to the suspense of the story.  This book was excellent, definitely worth the read!

He thinks Blago murdered someone?  Could he be mixing this up with Kwame stories by mistake?
