The Dresden Files: The Ark of Creation
Steve Werk is one corrupt son of a biatch. He has remained in office for over ten years… the maximum normally allowed is eight… that should already be raising red flags in your mind. He is a tall, well groomed snake in the grass. From taking bribes from everyone would would give him the minimum (200k) he would sell his own mother.
Now that is out of the way (no bias I assure you)… He is ridiculously smart, cunning, scheming, ruthless and VERY well connected with everyone.
Not much is known about his past before he ran for Mayor… and everyone who has tried to dig up information has gone missing. Connections are at work it seems… I would be wary of this guy.
