About the Book

Three former judges known as the "Brethren" are detained at Trumble, a fictitious federal minimum security facility situated in northern Florida. The trio starts a scheme to trick and take advantage of affluent homosexual guys who aren't out. Despite the fact that none of them are homosexual, they write effectively as two gay young guys who have become friends and are in need of financial assistance.
In the meanwhile, Aaron Lake, a hawkish congressman backed by the armaments industry, is being favoured in the United States presidential race by Teddy Maynard, the ruthless and soon-to-retire head of the CIA. However, the unaware Brethren manage to con Lake, who is a closeted man. Maynard rushes to prevent them from learning the truth because he knows Lake might be exposed if they do. Carson is assassinated by CIA operatives in the Caribbean after being fired by the Brethren.
Trumble was infiltrated by the CIA with a guy, who informs the Brethren that he is aware of the con. Judges are pardoned, a settlement is negotiated, and money is exchanged—but only after Maynard sends them abroad to hide his participation.

About Author

H. Rider Haggard

Sir Henry Rider Haggard KBE (22 June 1856 - 14 May 1925) was an English writer of fiction stories set in exotic locations, transcendently Africa. He was a trailblazer of the lost world literary genre and was engaged with land reform all through the British Empire. In 1878 Haggaed became Registrar of the High Court in the Transvaal and at the same time, he fell in love with Mary Elizabeth "Lilly" Jackson, whom he planned to wed once he acquired paid work in Africa. When he got back to Britain, he wedded a companion of his sister, Marianna Louisa Margitson. They had a child named Jack (brought into the world in 1881, passed on from measles at age 10) and three girls. After completing his studies in South Africa, Haggard wrote various unsuccessful books prior to composing his renowned book, King Solomon's Mines. He also wrote Nada the Lily (a tale of adventure among the Zulus) and the legendary Viking romance, Eric Brighteyes. His books are uncommon for the level of compassion for which the local populaces are depicted. Africans frequently played heroic parts in the books, although the protagonists are typically European. Haggard passed on 14 May 1925 in Marylebone, London, at the age of 68. His remains were buried at St Mary's Church, Ditchingham.
