A MAN ACCUSED OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT EXPLAINS “HIS VERSION OF THE TRUTH.”
A senior corporate executive in a failing marriage flirts with a twice-divorced female senior company executive who initially appears to respond to his advances.
After a number of romantic dinners, after-hour phone calls, and gifts willingly accepted, two very different realities unfold. The man believes he is well on the way to a promiscuous affair. The woman, under financial pressure from her demanding children and their father, a man with a drug dependency, envisions a large insurance payoff to silence her formal sexual harassment suit.
Soon, the harassment claim turns into a “she said-he said” survival of the fittest which the reader witnesses up-close and personal. In the end, there are surprising consequences for both the accuser and the accused, and unimagined collateral damage to the all the unwillingly participants drawn into the tawdry affair.
