Shadow of Wealth
This is a story of corruption, cheating, and power, maladministration and nepotism in high places; the story of a Managing Director of a public corporation who, in search of a young woman to entertain him, upsets the whole administration and turns discipline in the public corporation to satisfy her.
It was first a show of wealth-spending from public funds. It led from over strained expectations via disappointed hopes then missed its destination leading to the hard realization that the young woman for whom he sacrificed his work did not love him.
All the experiences are new and in the midst of corruption, maladministration, and cheating, she fights to get out of them and away from the woman who seeks to ruin her future-rare narrative power and authentic detail.
