In a small rural town in South Carolina bank president Royce Sedgewike falls dead at a
banquet dinner. The official cause of death is listed as a heart attack. Terri Stanley, a widow of less than 6 months re-enters
the work force securing a job at that same bank as a department trustee officer. Craig Ingramme is the trustee of the McGriffin
trust that Terri is auditing. The figures in this portfolio don't add up and Terri must decide which direction to take. Is
someone in the bank skimming funds from this account and has she been hired as the patsy?
Terri decides to go to Craig with her suspicions. Together they secure the original forms
to prevent any document tampering. Craig is an ex-seal PI with connections and quite wealthy. Craig launches into an investigation
that inadvertently places Terri and her son in danger. As the proverbial body count rises, Craig along with ex-seal buddy,
Lt. Grason MacGerald, scramble to smoke out a killer or killers.
The motives and possible suspects begin to form an unending roadmap with all roads leading
to dead ends. Terri and her son come up missing. Will Craig be able to locate them before the killer moves in or will this
snooping cause their deaths?
This authors story, about high-level corruption and greed is filled with colorful characters
ranging from filthy rich, high society "hob-nobs" to penniless "bag ladies." There's romance, depraved sexual acts, strange
friendship, along with a modern day Hatfield McCoy rivalry.
I highly recommend this novel filled with the pitfalls of power at the top. The ending
will surprise you!
