Boardroom Conspiracies is a both Wall Street murder mystery and an exciting courtroom drama of greed and lust for power. The author, a retired lawyer, provides a front-row seat in a New York City courtroom as the action unfolds. This tale involves topics taken directly from today’s newspapers headlines – insider trading and corporate greed – which form the sinews of this exciting novel
Allegations of malfeasance by former corporate Directors during a shareholders civil trial vie with claims of murder and infidelity in this modern day “Philadelphia” tale of greed and retribution.
These corporate Directors are accused not only of civil crimes but also of the possibly related murder of the board Chairman. Was his accidental death on board a cruise ship actually murder? Was he killed to prevent him from making a deal with authorities at the expense of his colleagues? Or were there more intimate and personal influences at work?
A diverse jury deliberates. Each member weighs the evidence, bringing unique perspectives to the deliberations. The author leads the reader through this story of intrigue and murder to an exciting resolution of the legal drama and then provides a surprising solution to the murder mystery.
