Senator Irene Wisnewski's hard living has finally done her in. Or so it appears when the tough old gal collapses and dies during hearings on health care reform. Dr. Maxene St Clair, on hand to testify about emergency room abuse, suspects murder, but her friend Detective Joseph Crabowski can't find the evidence to prove it-even though for decades Senator Irene has been poison to her colleagues, her staff, and the lobbyists who court her favor. Now the Wisnewski health care bill is also dead, and women's issues will soon be buried deeper than ever.
