With control of both the House and Senate up for grabs in 2018 and the direction of the nation resting on the outcome, never has a more savage, unrelenting fight been waged in the raptor cage that is the U.S. congress. From the torrid struggle between the conservative Freedom Caucus and Speaker Paul Ryan for control of the house, to the sexual assault accusations against Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that threw the Senate into turmoil, to the pitched battles across America in primaries, the road to the midterm election has been paved with chaos and intrigue. And that's before one considers that it's all refracted through the kaleidoscopic lens of President Trump, who can turn any situation on its head with just a single tweet. With inside access that ushers readers deep into the inner workings and hidden secrets of party leadership, Politco Playbookwriters Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman trace the strategy and the impulsiveness, the deal-making and the backstabbing, in a blow-by-blow account of the power struggle roiling the halls of Congress. The Hill to Die Onwill be an unforgettable story of power and politics, where the stakes are nothing less than the future of America under Trump.
