The main characters that star in the Siegelman Saga political thriller have deep roots in Alabama. They are the little known – like William Pryor and Laura Canary – and the notorious – like Rove and Abramoff; they are judges, politicos, and lobbyists who formed a coordinated network of criminal power and political influence.
