Deb had worked and fought her way from the council estate to a position that promised a comfortable retirement for her and her husband, Bob, and would make all sacrifices over the years worthwhile. Her skill, dedication and knowledge had enabled her to take a failing, small family business she had joined a quarter century before and turn it into an international empire. She had made her boss and the shareholders multi-millionaires. On paper, even Deb would walk away with a few million when it came to retire.
At the happiest and proudest point of her hard-working life, Deb’s evil boss, Ms Summer Posenbury, after twenty-five years of festering, hidden jealousy, shattered Deb’s world. With the help of her unscrupulous cohorts, Summer took away everything she had promised. She destroyed Deb’s reputation, took her rewards, trashed Deb’s achievements and dumped her at rock bottom.
about the author:
Rob Watkins studied art at college then went into industry, working his way up a large food processing company before becoming a house-husband when his wife Juli’s career took off. She, like his heroine in How to Kill a Minority Shareholder, was the main breadwinner, and Rob – like his hero, Bob spent his time looking after their son by day and working shifts by night.
However, art was always Rob’s first love, so when their son left school he went into business as a painter and decorator, specialising in murals. When demand for the artistic side of his work fell off, Rob decided to indulge his creative talents by writing his first novel, a revenge thriller based on the underhand tactics he witnessed in big business. Rob lives in Tamworth, Staffs.
