Synopsis: Peter Milton would never forget the nerve jarring sound of that cell door slamming shut behind him. It was just deserts for this devious man, so consumed by dreams of wealth and power, he rode roughshod over anyone who got in his way to achieve those dreams. He marries his Managing Directors daughter, purely as a stepping stone towards getting his hands on the business. When his goal is achieved, she becomes of no use to him, and cheats on her at every opportunity. He meets a beautiful, but mysterious woman. As clever as he thinks he is, he is no match for her, as she leads him into an elaborate trap resulting in a prison sentence and the loss of his business, his home, and his dignity. On release, he sets about climbing back up the social ladder by the only means his devious brain knows, cheating on the people who trust him. He even orders the disposal of his girlfriend who gets in the way of his plans. Once again he underestimates the female, and once again he finds himself imprisoned. This time for a murder he did not commit. --- About the Author: F. Maddox was born June 1941 in Stoke-on-Trent, England. World War II was raging. These were bleak times for everyone. Air raids, food shortages, power cuts. But everyone just got on with it. --- As a child F. Maddox had no trouble keeping himself amused. He had a vivid imagination and curiosity was his middle name. He wanted to know all about everything. He always had his head in an encyclopedia. He was an avid reader of Enid Blyton and Just William. As a young boy, he began to pen stories, mostly about space and monsters, as young boys do. As time went by, his stories became longer and more sophisticated and had more to do with real life, nearly all with a twist in the tail. --- F. Maddox still reads a lot. His all-time favorite author is Charles Dickens, whom he admired for his descriptive genius. --- F. Maddox's writing virtually ended when he married. Up until then he must have written about twenty novels. All pushed to the back of the draw and never published. At the age of 62, he took an early retirement to live in Cyprus, where he is able to concentrate on his writing again.
