Gene Trowbridge, a successful advertising executive, fills the days before his retirement assessing his past and contemplating the future, increasingly aware of his own irrelevance in a field dominated by the very young.
But a chance meeting with Albert Ferdinand, a reclusive neighbour who wins his regard and friendship, upsets the tenuous balance of Gene's cosseted world.
Spurred on by a persistent journalist and overwhelmed by his instinctive liking and acceptance of a man apparently capable of indescribable evil, Gene is drawn into a suspenseful search for the truth about Ferdinand's past. The Liberty Campaign is a riveting, multilayered portrait of an ordinary man whose moral universe is tested by a situation that defies the parameters of his decidedly American upbringing and sensibility.
