Oliver Lincoln III, is a young man who identifies as pacifist, even though his father runs a major arms company known for its excellent space fighters. To Oliver's way of thinking, such craft should only be used for planetary defense. The novel's main plot takes Oliver from his native Terra (which seems to be the future Earth) to one of the many planets humans have colonized, Sirius. He's there to sell his company's fighters to the Sirian military. While there, Oliver comes to suspect that the Sirians have designs on another human-colonized planet, Vega. As the plot progresses, Oliver moves away from his pacifist impulses.

Kathleen Turner has goals. She moved to Indianapolis to start seeing to them, but things aren’t going quite as well as she’d hoped. She’s a runner for a high-powered law firm in town, not the most prestigious of positions, but it and her part-time bartender gig at least pays the bills. And one of the senior partners is a dreamboat in that obscenely rich, disturbingly good looking, slightly snobbish sort of way.

She was quite happy ogling him from afar, before she did a mortifying face plant in his lap during a meeting. After that…well…she was more about the avoiding. Mature, no. More likely to assure she keeps her job, yes.

She’s made some friends in the few months she’s been in Indy. One of those friends is her neighbor Sheila, though Kathleen can’t say she’s completely comfortable with Sheila’s job choice as a high-dollar escort.

It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood.

Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend. It’s the opening gambit in a web of murder, deceit, conspiracy, and fraud that stretches to the law firm for which Kathleen works. Maybe to the very office that Blane Kirk commands.

And Kathleen Turner, law office runner, can trust no one if she wants to survive.

The Lobbyist by Thomas Hibbard
Genre - Mystery & Thriller (PG13)

The story is a study of government ambition, flawed characters, and hidden agendas, set in the compelling world of Los Angeles county government, a hornet’s nest of intrigue, political infighting, and murder. It is also a story fueled by the central theme that no matter how filled one’s life may be with trials and tribulations, in the end, happiness is found in the love of another. Tom Burton, former Chief Deputy to L.A. Supervisor John Howard, finds himself being investigated by attractive L.A. Times reporter Kathy Boyd, who has been assigned to Tom as a promising source for information on allegations of possible county corruption involving Tom’s ex-boss. 

But, Tom is no friend of the press and Kathy finds her assignment less than productive, until Tom finds himself the main suspect in Howard’s murder. With all evidence pointing in Tom’s direction, including knowledge that he had a grudge against Howard before his death, Tom sees the writing on the wall. Ultimately, Tom and Kathy find their unlikely pairing mutually advantageous, and a rocky relationship ensures. When the County Sheriff and District Attorney move to prosecute Tom, and Kathy becomes the target of drug dealers who she had exposed in past reporting, the two find their lives changed forever in ways they could never have imagined. 

Told with grit and showing more than a little hard-boiled attitude, The Lobbyist is filled with multifaceted characters and complex subplots. Beautifully paced and written in masterful prose, Thomas Hibbard has written a book that ranks with the best in the political thriller genre. The Lobbyist is sure to please any thriller buff, as well as any lover of good storytelling.
