Marilyn Quayle, wife of Vice President Dan Quayle, and her sister will have their novel "The Rage of the Lamb" published next year, Crown Publishing Group said.

"It is full of suspenseful twists and turns and glimpses of government in action," Crown editor in chief Betty Prashker said Wednesday.The novel, co-authored by Marilyn Quayle's sister, Nancy Northcott, is set in Cuba after the death of Fidel Castro and chronicles a U.S.-Soviet power struggle.

Its hero is an American senator "who discovers chicanery not only in the Cuban government but in his own," Crown said.
