Lasko Tangent by Richard North Patterson

Book Description

William Lasco is a self-made multimillionaire who's got an eye for wealth and influence, the ear of the President, and a talent for using both to get what he wants. Now the Economic Crime Commission wants the corrupt, untouchable Lasko brought down - and US Attorney Christopher Paget is tipped to take on the job. To gather enough evidence to nail Lasko without alienating the White House, Paget has to go by the book. But Lasko makes his own rules. And eliminating his 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 international bestseller, Degree of Guilt.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A routine post-Watergate uncover-up investigation - begun when narrator Christopher Paget of the U.S. Economic Crimes Commission is assigned the job of ascertaining whether or not William Lasko ("The President's favorite industrialist") is guilty of stock manipulation. Chris suspects that more than financial swindles are involved when his first witness - the controller of Lasko Devices - is hit-and-run murdered on a Boston street right after telling Chris, "I've got a memo at home that will deliver the whole thing." And Chris' next contact, the man who has set up a dummy corporation for Lasko down on a Caribbean isle, disappears just as Chris arrives to interview him. The chase, which is rather slow and talky (though some of the talk is tart and sharp), eventually leads to the Massachusetts sanitarium where that Lasko employee is incarcerated. . . and then right to the White House. Naturally. Filled out with Chris' pleasant enough affair with a crisp government lady-in-power, this first novel provides no noticeable thrills, but it's slightly classier in tone than much of this genre, even as it runs its hero through a numbingly familiar gauntlet.
