Publisher's Summary

Politics is a mean spirited business. Power Play allows the listener to be in the room where this character-driven novel is graphically experienced - history repeats itself.

Questionable police tactics didn't begin in 2014. The awareness and threats caused by aggressive police actions have recently changed, but they're not without precedent. A city manager has the inside story. Listen to Power Play, a story set in the 1970s when blind trust was too often the case: deceit, revenge, militaristic police, affected legal system, and gay tragedy; the end of the Hoover era, amidst the death throes of the Nixon debacle. The author has captured an era, depicting a battle for the soul of the Republic, at the local level.

Young, handsome, and charming Collier Winthrop is enticed by a crusty old political boss, Al Caso, to seek public office. Collie soon faces an unscrupulous adversary practiced in deceit: manipulated state investigative agencies and a contaminated police department. Events unfold that uncover a sordid police mentality, unveil the civil rights of the flower children violated, ruin reputations, and threaten the very lives of Collie's confederates.

How can Collie unravel plots unseen and unimaginable to survive even the earliest months of his political enterprise? The work portrays the depth and conflict of personalities. Politics is a business of expediency. Otherwise, decent people justify immoral behavior in defense of careers.

Author bio: Mr. Repp is no stranger to politics, with nearly 50 years in political and government operations, Mr. Repp has taken that experience and is now sharing with his audiences. He was first elected to chair a political party at the age of 24 and served for 20 years. He was the County Supervisor of Elections; Upstate NY Town Manager; Long Island, NY, Village Manager of Fire Island; and City Economic Development Manager in Florida.
