America emerged from post-World War II as the most powerful and economically affluent country in the world. Poverty lessened, unemployment rates declined, and socially, America was truly the land of freedom, hope, and equal opportunity. The relaxation of the rigid rules that had won the war for us opened the door for greedy, self-centered individuals to take advantage of us. This is a story of those Fatted Cats: the dynasty of the government and industry cartel that controlled the economy with power, corruption, and immortality for nearly half a century. The focus of the story is a young man climbing the ladder of success, who falls reluctantly into the whirlwind of an executive's life with the Fatted Cats. He is quick to learn that nothing, not even murder, stands in the way of their purposes. Amid the corruption, he still manages to bring millions of dollars of business into his corporation and is rewarded appropriately. Despite this, he feels his family slipping away. After pursuing a trail of murder and intrigue around the world, he is faced with rebuke, disgrace, and peril in his and his family's life. With seemingly no escape, this book is a thriller from the start and is based upon many facts about corporate America in that great time period.
