Ben Leiter presents professional-life snapshots of conflict, corruption, betrayal, murder, suicide, drug running, spying, sex scandals, courage, communists, Nazis, several heroes, and a monkey on the loose. Most days were meetings. He is a gray man and encountered the best and the worst in people. This is his story as a municipal bureaucrat, spanning forty-four years.

Local government is where we live, work, and die. It's a wild ride. Dare to take it.
