Now, hes staring down the barrel of a gun, pursued by two of the worlds most dangerous men. To get out, hell have to do all the things he thought hed never do again: lie, cheat, steal-and this time, maybe even kill.Mike grew up in a world of small-stakes con men, learning lessons at his fathers knee. His hard-won success in college and law school was his ticket out. As the Davies Groups rising star, he rubs shoulders with The 500, the elite men and women who really run Washington -- and the world. But peddling influence, he soon learns, is familiar work: even with a pedigree, a con is still a con.Combining the best elements of political intrigue and heart-stopping action, THE 500 is an explosive debut, one that calls to mind classic thrillers like The Firm and Presumed Innocent. In Mike Ford, readers will discover a new hero who learns that the higher the climb, the harder -- and deadlier -- the fall.
