In our bold new America that is ruled by the 1 percent, can one rather naive young MBA earn admittance to those exclusive ranks? And still do "good?" Find out in this hilarious, hard-nosed send-up of corporate culture and political scheming that serves up a riotous, razor-sharp read certain to enthrall anyone in search of a satirical salve for all that ails us in our pyramid-like economy. Billy O'Brien is a newly-anointed young lobbyist who finds a rare opportunity as a K Street Warrior, one of a prestigious cabal who from backstage manipulate political and economic developments from Wall Street to Capitol Hill. When Billy ends up in hell - he is a lobbyist, after all - he's sent on a high-priority mission to New York City with the irredeemable Randy and Eloise as minders. But even the devil himself doesn't anticipate the allure and street smarts of angel Lisa Halloran. Skewering political corruption gone amok and corporate greed obscenely engorged, "Beelzebub O'Brien, K Street Warrior," serves up a sly satire with a healthy dose of young love thrown into its merry mix. You're certain to laugh on every preposterous page. Then you can go back to feeling bitter.

the satire is extremely broad, and except for the touchingly inept Billy, whose naïveté protects him from being evil, the characters rarely register as anything other than types.
