Angela McKenzie, an aggressive Black reporter on the make, has come to Washington, D.C., looking for the big story, looking to rewrite her own. She gets her chance when she least expects it. Angela stumbles into the hidden world of a close friend--a political consultant and lobbyist. What she discovers is a place where things are never the way they appear, and where power-hungry people will go to extremes to maintain appearances. Special Interest is the story of power politics in Washington and the incestuous relationships of its power players--lawmakers and law-breakers, news makers and news reporters, politicians and lobbyists. It is a tale of political intrigue that exposes the harsh reality behind the alabaster façades--the decisions being made in back rooms and boardrooms.
