A political reporter for the state’s largest newspaper is found dead on State Capitol grounds. It is a very disturbing beginning for Tommy Jacks on his first day as a 1960s newspaper reporter, hired to cover politics. He soon encounters an eclectic group of characters who bring to life a different world at a different time: Taylor Albright, legendary gossip-monger and discredited columnist; Ray Jacks, Tommy’s father, an infamous political leader now in state prison; Joe Louongo, slimy lawyer of questionable ethics; Steve Marsh, sportswriter and former famous football star; J.H. Gilmore and his son, Robbie, wealthy and conniving owners of a competing newspaper; Tracy Clark, beautiful TV reporter; and Judy Jackson, gorgeous past playmate of Tommy’s. A story of the ’60s, full of intrigue, love, and tragedy—Tommy Jacks: Muckraker.
