About the Book

The epic story of a Senator’s rise and fall.

Mark Coffin of California was barely thirty years old when he won a startling upset victory in his race for a seat in the U.S. Senate. A bright, handsome, energetic idealist with the passion for decency in government—he thought his honesty and dedication would see him through anything.

But Washington, DC, was all too eager to teach him the hard lessons of gamesmanship and compromise. Neither Mark Coffin nor his wife were prepared for the words that Washington had in store for them: the bizarre sex scandal that would threaten to destroy not only Mark Coffin’s career and his personal life, but all of the political reforms he was fighting so desperately to achieve.

Mark Coffin, USS is a magnificent novel of Washington politics—an insider’s view of power at the top, shown through the eyes of vivid, fascinating, and humanly likable characters.

From the master of spellbinding political fiction, author of Advise and Consent

About the Author
Allen Drury

Allen Drury (1918–1998) was a master of political fiction, #1 New York Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize winner, best known for the landmark novel Advise and Consent. A 1939 graduate of Stanford University, Drury wrote for and became editor of two local California newspapers. While visiting Washington, DC, in 1943 he was hired by the United Press (UPI) and covered the Senate during the latter half of World War II. After the war he wrote for other prominent publications before joining the New York Times' Washington Bureau, where he worked through most of the 1950s. After the success of Advise and Consent, he left journalism to write full time. He published twenty novels and five works of non-fiction, many of them best sellers. WordFire Press will be reissuing the majority of his works.
