Power Play by F Ethan Repp Review
History repeats itself. Take a ride back memory lane to the 1970's. 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, 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.
About the Author:
Mr. Repp is no stranger to politics, with nearly 50 years of Political/Government Operations, Mr. Repp has taken that experience and is now sharing with his readers. He was first elected to chair a political party at the age of 24 and serve 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. Mr. Repp holds a Master's Degree in Public Administration and has taught school on the middle school level.
When I first started the book I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not but I really did enjoy this book. It has a nice touch of both mystery and suspense and I really like watching how the plot grew and developed along with the Collie. Also for some reason I really liked Collie as a character. I just kind of thought his character was cool. I don't I have no explanation for it. Anyways I really did enjoy this book and it taught me a bit more on politics, which I admit isn't something I know a lot of, so that was a plus as well. I always like it can when I can take away and learn something from a book so I give props to the author for that. Overall I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and if you want to find this book you can get it at amazon.

Ethan Repp for sending me this book. I really liked it so once again thank you.
