The Lasko TangentLarge Print - 1979
Now the United States Economic Crimes Commission wants the corrupt, untouchable Lasko brought down -- and Christopher Paget, a young U.S. Attorney, is tapped to take on the unenviable job.
To gather enough evidence to nail Lasko without alienating the White House, Paget's got to go by the book. But Lasko makes his own rules. And eliminating enemies is William Lasko's golden rule....
In The Lasko Tangent, Richard North Patterson has written an unstoppable thriller of one man's fight for justice -- the man who became the hero of his phenomenal New York Times bestseller, Degree of Guilt.
