Murder in the corporate headquarters of an international oil company; a beautiful psychotic driven to revenge; one man's obsession with stopping corporate downsizing...this is the thrilling heart of Involuntary Separation.
On one side: Corporate America as embodied by the Chairman of the Board. At the center: John McCall, a brilliant financial analyst promoted to Vice President of Finance and directed to affect a dramatic corporate downsizing. From across an ocean: Beatrice Winter, whose father kiled himself after the Chairman drove his company into bankruptcy. In the balance: The lives of millions of American families.
Confronting one of the most consequential issues of our time, Involuntary Separation compels us to see what really motivates corporate downsizings and why we must stop them if we espect our great society to survive. Rick Lacey shows Wall Street what it has missed and Main Street what it must do.
Note: Involuntary Separation is under consideration for the 2003 Pulitzer Prize in Letters for Fiction
