All is not as it seems and Mark Telford finds himself drawn into a web of intrigue, complicated by his amorous involvement with the beautiful Compliance Officer Nancy Lindstrom. As the situation worsens Telford finds himself threatened by ambitious and ruthless executives to whom greed and duplicity is a way of life. It leads to a disastrous denouement at a lonely farmhouse in Michigan.
