After more than a few walks on the wild side, he thought he’d seen it all, but gets more than he bargained for when he finds himself drowning in a sea of criminal enterprises spawned by his new employer. Conflicted over remaining loyal or risking his life by uncovering the truth, he is driven to confront the corruption that surrounds him. The plot involves unexpected twists as he weaves his way through a labyrinth of fraud, bribes, drug deals and extortion, all under the watchful eye of greedy politicians in a small southern college town. When his home is bombed and his life is threatened, he realizes he’s in over his head and revealing the dealership’s secrets could cost him his life. Witness to a seventy million dollar corporate fraud, he becomes challenged in his belief in the redemptive power of truth and honesty. Compelled to warn the public, he begins leading a secret life as a confidential informant for the FBI. In their attempts to conceal the crimes, politicians, media executives and law enforcement officials become embroiled in internal disputes over killing the story to sidestep serious moral questions about our top elected leaders. The corporate thriller is an emotional roller coaster ride of suspenseful, crazy, often hilarious behind-the-scenes looks at the secretive inner workings of a dishonest dealership that would do anything to sell you a car. With a cast of colorful characters that includes twisted FBI agents, corrupt Attorney Generals, bungling computer hackers and hired hit men, the romantic encounters and page-turning suspense sizzle with the author’s dark humor and depravity-punctuated with all the dirty little secrets that dealerships don’t want you to know.
