John George Mortimer is at the top of his game. The company he built from the ground up is now one of the largest in the world, and exciting developments promise to broaden its reach into even bigger markets. He prides himself on making good decisions and surrounding himself with strong, capable people, but after learning he has developed breast cancer, he realizes he must quickly find a worthy successor.
He challenges his top executives to develop radical game-changer business strategies that should make it easy for his board of directors to choose one of them. Despite careful preparation, his plan begins to unravel almost immediately. Organized crime, sexual misadventures, and personal tragedy combine to complicate his efforts to select a new CEO. Even as he lies in recovery from cancer treatments, he is forced to battle against shadowy interests who seek to take away the fruit of his life’s work.
Three Weeks Less a Day is a fast-paced international business thriller that takes us inside the lives of high-powered executives and the lengths they will go to achieve results. It is a story of how quickly things can change at the highest levels of corporate leadership, and how easily lives can crumble in pursuit of power and control.
Can Multima Corporation withstand another attack from organized crime? While billionaire John George Mortimer copes with treatment for cancer, the accomplished CEO must also ward off challenges for control of his sprawling fictional American empire both from within the company and from nefarious powers operating outside the law.
The Multima Scheme is a fast-paced account of the lengths to which organized crime can infiltrate large global corporations and seize control of respected businesses to conceal activities that are both illegal and immoral but generate billions. It’s also a story of survival – how individuals and organizations might react under intense pressures and the ease with which people can cross lines between what’s legal and what’s not.
Using his knowledge of how large multinationals operate – accumulated over 40 years working with major corporations around the world – author Gary D. McGugan weaves a tale of intrigue using a writing style readers will find hard to put down once started.
