About the Book

Between 1989 and 1990 SOLIDARNOSC (Solidarity) movement, under the leadership of Lech Walesa, was the key catalyst in the fall of the Berlin Wall and the final collapse of the Communist regime. Solidarity was greatly supported by Polish Pope, John Paul II, US President Ronald Reagan and UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Even Polish and Soviet police couldn't crush the determination of millions devoted Catholics, who prayed on their knees together with the Solidarity chaplain, Monsignor Henryk Jankowski. Various foundations created by Monsignor received charitable donations from all over the world in order to further the cause of freedom. It turned out, that not all of those funds went to charitable causes, serving Monsignor's substantial personal fortune instead and raising him to the status of the richest man in Poland. He enjoyed an extravagantly luxurious life for several years until the partnership with former Communist manipulators devastated his fortune, name and reputation. He died in 2010 in abject poverty, abondoned by friends and even the Church. This is the story of greed, betrayal and secret dealings in offshore jurisdiction, bloody shooting and chase for the money. The REVENGE OF MONEY reveals the final chapter of the monsignor's fortune and misfortune.
