About The Book
The story takes the reader on a journey through a modern American
corporation where bottom-line profit and individual glory take precedence
over all else, including the welfare of ordinary employees.
As a senior administrative officer with a large insurance and financial
services company, Riley McReynolds deals day in and day out with a wide
assortment of egos, personalities and political game-players, led by the son
of a backwoods religious fanatic who struggles mightily to grow rich and gain
status through a finely tuned blend of bravado, social climbing, and the
power of the imperial chairmanship.
Thinking he had seen everything there was to see when a prosecutor and
criminal defese attorney, McReynolds is strangely unprepared for the

involving his own career and the welfare of Liddy Jonssen, an up-and-coming
Against the backdrop of a massive downsizing and the political

entertain us with searing social commentary, side-splitting humor, and,
ultimately, a touching tale of the central importance of individual
responsibility and moral choice.
