Corruption, criminality, misogyny and racism inside the United States establishment!
Ronald Crump is an unlikely president – spoilt as a child, difficult in school and a natural heir to his father’s real estate business. His activities in boarding school, sometimes with the connivance of his friend, Christopher Johnson, result in his single-handed rape and blackmail of his French teacher, at the age of fourteen. But this was just the beginning…
Now at university, Ronald experiences a completely different world, where nobody views life through his hate-filled lenses. Nevertheless, he leaves university with a degree and uses this to expand his father’s business, which he takes over.
A rival company’s secretary is involved in a horrific attack, and the FBI suspects Crump. Fortunately for him, he has the Chief of Police in his pocket, which certainly makes life easier. Even more so when female employees try to take him to court for misogynist treatment.
Crump marries an unlikely partner, Tracy, who is the complete opposite of him. She has no idea what he is capable of, and he wants to keep it that way. Now, President of the United States, his workers live in constant fear of him as his criminal and corrupt plans come to light…
