In the pursuit of power and fortune, one family proves there is no price too steep in order to achieve their goal; extortion, bribery and murder, even the killing of their own. This is the saga of the family Tobias, who managed to rise from the ashes of the Civil War and transform themselves from plantation owners into a present day textile conglomerate with ties to the highest office in the government. Their span of seemingly unending success has only been made possible with the help of one deep dark secret, so powerful that it could rewrite a nation's history. For over a century the Tobias' have kept the truth hidden behind a cloak of lies and deceit, but now as the secret threatens to get out, the Tobias' show they are willing to do anything to keep it.

First of all, this novel was referred to me my a best friend, who resides in Philadelphia, PA; and served as a counselor, teacher, principal, and Assistant Superintendent in the Philadelphia school system. The author writes like a veteran writer. From the beginning, the reader is drawn into the life and times of the characters and the environments in which they live. You are right there. Caught up in the contrast between opulence and degradation. Great mystery, "twists and turns", and surprises. I think the inclusion of historical milestones and "what ifs" is brilliant. The vision of a plantation and then a major corporation supported by slavery is haunting and thought provoking. Waiting for more from this author Big Bowie, MD
This was an awesome read. Totally different from the norm. Couldn't put it down.
