The Plutocrat

By Rory Harden

Thriller, Comedy & satire, Literary fiction, General fiction | Paperback, Hardback, eBook


What happens when people give up on their familiar political leaders and put their faith in a third-party candidate for President? Willard Prince is incredibly successful and stupendously rich. He owns an apartment in the best building on Park Avenue. He runs the New American Century Fund, whose returns are famous - notorious? - for their consistency. (If you want to invest, you’ll need an invitation.) But do the voters really know what they’d be getting? And who could stop him? The homeless woman who joins his campaign? Why can’t she see through him? The slacker-girl who gets mixed up with the Robin Hood Party? Is she out of her depth? The Australian whistle-blower guy, who’s on the run? The Campaign Manager who thinks his last race will shatter the system? And what about that blue-eyed tech billionaire who wants to disrupt? What’s his take on democracy in America? And what if China has surpassed America already?
