When a former pro football star and broadcaster, now a Wall Street maven is accused of insider trading, will he be able to prove his innocence and expose those who are guilty?
Greg and his boyhood pal dreamed of big success in professional football and then later in business. Greg was the only one to live the dream. Now the founder of an investment fund Greg is faced with a routine audit finding by the SEC. The audit points to irregularities and all the tracks lead to Greg. The justice department hits him with an indictment of 23 counts of fraud, money laundering, and insider trading. His firm goes bust, and Greg is on his own.
His best friend knows he is innocent but has been ordered under penalty of eternal damnation not to help.
If you enjoy stories of riches to rags, redemption, brotherly love, and a little of the paranormal, Circumstance of Childhood will keep you riveted.
My Review: This story reveals a most interesting plot. It is the story of two brothers, Greg and Keith. They are not blood brothers, they become brothers through circumstances of childhood which is dutifully explained.
The story is mainly told by Keith, but sometimes Greg gives an account and due to the nature of the circumstances around the story this works very well.
The story is brilliantly devised and very well told with a nice supernatural air to it.
