CHICAGO (PRWEB) February 29, 2016
Corporate power and addiction are two themes that interest author Jill Wilson Brennan. Her striking novel “Skyscrapers” (published by AuthorHouse) illustrates the griming reality of corporate malfeasance and underlying drug and violence culture in urban America. She believes that the public in general has a constant interest on stories about corporate greed.
Described as page-turner fiction, “Skyscrapers” follows the vendetta launched against the self-made CEO Vern Webb Sr. of Midwest Industries. With a criminal past, Vern is challenged by a beautiful and determined female competitor Ellie Smith, who hopes to take over his company. Ellie becomes a victim of random violence. Their lives become intertwined as both Vern and Ellie battle to preserve their lives and status. Their struggles against unexpected blows and twists surprise readers until the very end of the story.
“I don’t think anyone,” Brennan shares, “has written about a drug-laundering business hidden within a legitimate business as the source of corporate malfeasance.”
An excerpt of the book “Skyscrapers:”
Vern froze. All he could think of was blackmail, but how, and why, and why now? If Loretta was still a junkie, she must surely have died a long time ago. Vern felt as if he had just fallen headfirst out of a safe boat into swamp-rot.
