Two decades after a young Thomas Culhane escaped Eureka, California, to fight in World War I, police detective Zeke Bannon investigates a seemingly accidental death and uncovers dark secrets from the past that could threaten Culhane's campaign for governor of California.

Blackwell North Amer
The year is 1941. Verna Wilensky has been electrocuted in her bathtub, leaving a lower-middle-class life, no survivors, and a bank account packed with almost a hundred thousand dollars. Mysterious checks have consistently come to her for more than twenty years, most drawn from a bank in San Pietro, a town once known as Eureka.
Eureka was a town that used to be a bootlegger's paradise and a gangster's dream. Now it is the rebuilt metropolis where Sheriff Thomas Culhane is launching a bid to be the Golden State's next governor. But something just might threaten his ambitions. As Bannon digs deeper into Wilensky's demise, he unearths a decades-old secret that starts in a shootout, builds to a bloodbath, and could end up within the upper echelons of California's elite, forever changing the destiny of a state.

Reasonably good "airplane read" type of novel. A little far fetched in the plot but has a good narrative and pace. The characterization is done well. Non linear murder mystery story. Worth reading if you are interested.
