Successors by Jon Steinhagen

Kenton DeKoven, latest mayor in a long line of mayors of a major Midwestern city, announces his retirement after 25 years of service without letting his politically ambitious children know in advance. Set during a Labor Day family party/send-off for his college-bound grandson, SUCCESSORS shows a political family trying to make the best of a potentially disastrous situation - for themselves.
