When Bradford T. Young found himself at the epicenter of Florida's overheated real estate market, he plunged into the universal greed trap - a craving quest for piles of money, corrupting power and seductive women. But that was before his guilty nightmares began . . . and before Amanda "Mandy" Grant, a tabloid investigative reporter, unwittingly placed a mystical spell over him. Brad is soon forced to make a life-altering choice - slide further into an abyss of greed or pursue a fleeting opportunity to earn Mandy's love which he also covets. Brad's quandary intensifies when Mandy's investigation uncovers and exposes the illicit inner workings of the corrupt organization he now works for. As Mandy garners the wrath of a New York mobster and his evil empire, only Brad as a "company insider" can save her from the unfathomable terror that follows. In a cunning cat and mouse gambit, Brad must race to beat organized crime at its own wicked game, as David pitted against Goliath with death or love hanging in the balance.
