About the Book

Sean O’Reilly thought he knew the world of corporations and consulting. When Wall Street sharks, murder, greed, and revenge come together at Mid Continent Electric Power, his education is enhanced much further. He also realizes that working for a sleepy Kansas City utility is a little more than he bargained for.

First, it starts with the murder of the CEO who was hired to wake up the company and bring it to the new de-regulated world. Then, there is a lovely lady who was murdered at a party over twenty years ago.

While the hunt for the murderer goes on, a neighboring electric utility launches a hostile takeover. O’Reilly begins to wonder if the hostile takeover has anything to do with the murder of the CEO.

Another murder in the company raises the stakes and O’Reilly realizes the, up to now, untouchable suspects have got to be stopped. When he finds out they are targeting Linda Morgan, his lovely and eccentric friend, it becomes personal.

That’s when things get messy.
