While few men are given even a single opportunity to write or rewrite history, at home or abroad, Paul Hollrah's willingness to confront whatever challenges were placed before him... to seize the "brass rings" of opportunity without hesitation... has provided him with numerous opportunities. My Six Passages is the story of one man's challenge-filled and adventure-filled life, beginning on a Missouri sharecropper farm and ultimately placing him at the centers of power and influence in Washington and abroad. In the fourth and final part of this four-part series, the author provides proof that there truly is life after fifty. After inadvertently uncovering major wrongdoing within his own corporation, the author chose to resign from what he described as "the best job in the world." Undeterred, he went on to become a central figure in numerous high-level intrigues, both in Washington and in foreign capitals, from Managua to Moscow... the sort of intrigues of which Hollywood adventure films are made. This is his story.
