The Greater Evil
Lilith Delaney sits in a bleak interrogation room, recounting the tale of her short-lived run as Communications Director for Victor Balch, a rising Republican candidate for the Presidency once written off as a caricature for his brash, confrontational style. Despite his glaring flaws, Balch is rising rapidly in the polls, trouncing a more established opponent and gaining a fiercely loyal following. Though Lilith initially considers her role as just another job, she gradually finds herself subject to Balch's ineffable spell... until her gradual disillusionment allows her to catch a fleeting glimpse of his horrific true nature, and to understand his ultimate intent.
