Dirty tricks specialist

6/10
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
10 February 2016

A young undercover detective is murdered by a hit-man from the Albanian mob. The arrest is comparatively easy for Dennis Farina and Jesse Martin, but as to who fingered her which is the someone they really want to get, of all things the Albanian trigger guy says he read it in the newspaper.

Turns out the young detective was the daughter of a political figure who was a rival of a rising political star and member of the House Of Representatives. The guy who was doing the dirty work is Garret Dillahunt who is a dirty tricks specialist. But his job is also to anticipate these things and feed his boss just enough information to give him deniability. Something that Nixon's Watergate plumbers failed to do.

Dillahunt is a nasty, but very clever customer. A little bit of evidence tampering almost puts Sam Waterston's case in the toilet. His career and Fred Dalton Thompson's as well could have gone there.

Politics attracts some nasty people to it and Dillahunt is a great example of the type.
