From the best-selling author of A Vast Conspiracy and The Run of His Life comes Too Close to Call--the definitive story of the Bush-Gore presidential recount. A political and legal analyst of unparalleled journalistic skill, Jeffrey Toobin is the ideal writer to distill the events of the thirty-six anxiety-filled days that culminated in one of the most stunning Supreme Court decisions in history. Packed with news-making disclosures and written with the drive of a legal thriller, Too Close to Call takes us inside James Baker's private jet, through the locked gates to Al Gore's mansion, behind the covered-up windows of Katherine Harris's office, and even into the secret conference room of the United States Supreme Court. As the scene shifts from Washington to Austin and into the remote corners of the enduringly strange Sunshine State, Toobin's book will transform what you thought you knew about the most extraordinary political drama in American history. The Florida recount unfolded in a kaleidoscopic maze of bizarre concepts (chads, pregnant and otherwise), unfamiliar people in critically important positions (the Florida Supreme Court), and familiar people in surprising new places (the Miami relatives of Elián González, in a previously undisclosed role in this melodrama). With the rich characterization that is his trademark, Toobin portrays the prominent strategists who masterminded the campaigns--the Daleys and the Roves--and also the lesser-known but influential players who pulled the strings, as well as the judges and justices whose decisions determined the final outcome. Toobin gives both camps a treatment they have not yet received--remarkably evenhanded, nonpartisan, and entirely new. The post-election period posed a challenge to even the most zealous news junkie: how to keep up with what was happening and sort out the important from the trivial. Jeffrey Toobin has now done this--and then some. With clarity, insight, humor, and a deep understanding of the law, he deconstructs the events, the players, and the often Byzantine intricacies of our judicial system. A remarkable account of one of the most significant periods in our country's history, Too Close to Call is endlessly surprising, frequently poignant, and wholly addictive.

Toomey Spooner hasn't achieved much in his thirty-nine years, and now he seems to recognize a final chance to turn his useless life around. He ascertains a need, some signal accomplishment, something his survivors can chisel into a tombstone. So he resolves not to leave the world as he entered it (fat and bald and blank) but as mayor of Oceana, Kentucky. After a long ghost-haunted night fueled with whisky, and vivid intimations of his own mortality, he realizes that he has reached that pivotal crossroads where everything in his life is at stake. With his pitiful patrimony as his political war chest, this feckless scion of a long line of Oceanans embarks on his race. But politics becomes much trickier and messier than Toomey ever figured. His girlfriend Wilhelmina Rains is sure he has lost his mind. Early on, his cousin Jerry Toller joins in puffing Toomey's campaign but then masterminds a renegade program of his own. Panthrex, a gargantuan multinational corporation that schemes to locate a toxin-spewing medical waste incinerator in Oceana, puts its bulk and bankroll behind Toomey's lifelong opponent, the villianous Dickey Fitzgerald. These and other hateful forces strive to crush him.
