“A Slippery Shadow” delivers shockingly realistic intrigue as unsuspecting enterprise leaders, legal and otherwise, become pawns in a clandestine plan to influence global events.
With the abduction of crime boss Fidelia Morales from the cabin of her private jet, the drama unfolds from the very first page of A Slippery Shadow by award-winning author Gary D. McGugan. The intensity escalates rapidly as Fidelia isn’t the only one in trouble. Suzanne Simpson, CEO of Multima Corporation, fights for the very soul of her corporate empire amid bombings, international politics, executive vacancies, and her understandably skittish security team. Howard Knight, a man who had had ties to both The Organization and Multima Corporation, finds himself on the run, but he isn’t quite sure who he’s running from. All three adversaries are entangled in a treacherous web of destruction, orchestrated by a relentless entity known only as the Shadow.
Reflecting on what drives his passion for his craft, McGugan notes, “My inspiration is always to create a tale to entertain my readers. But, there are also fundamental changes taking place in our global society, from unconventional political leaders, global corporations generating revenues far greater than most people can conceptualize, and the sanitization of organized crime as they infiltrate legitimate companies traded on public stock markets. A Slippery Shadow suggests what might happen when a player in one of those sectors decides to pull strings to influence what they want to happen, and how easily it all might take form. While I’m entertaining my readers, I’d like them to think about the possible implications and how those actions might eventually touch all of us in unexpected ways.”
