    I'm sorry but this is one of the few books I couldn't even finish. There is too much jumping around and too many random characters. It may tie in together eventually but I simply lost interest because it wasn't interesting enough to continue investing my time.

    Reviewed by Richard R. Blake for Reader Views (08/06)In this amazing story Jack Eadon has captured the core of today's corporate world. Eadon involves the reader in the politics, turmoil, and greed of corporate America. He reveals the baseness and beauty of a small central Texas town. This is done through the development of colorful characters and a detailed description of the environment and culture of the area.Corporate trouble shooter, Marcus Ramsay is assigned to a division of Allied Foods, based in Chicago. The Coyote Chili plant in Corsicana, Texas, has not been keeping up with population trends per capita and the operating income has been declining over the last 10 years since Earl Hickman became president after the death of James Post, founder of the company.Ramsey is faced with the challenge of turning the operation around to produce a solution to these problems. Within a few months of his arrival, in Corsicana, the spirit of James Post enters into Ramsey. Questions surrounding the death of James Post come to light.Marcus and his secretary, Daisy, pry into the intriguing incidents surrounding Hickman's 10 year history as president of the company. They uncover questions regarding the baffling death of James Post. They discover evidence that implicate some of the locals in a conspiracy to murder James Post.The unscrupulous conduct of Earl Hickman, his wife, Sheila, and Coyote broker, Frank Benedict give another dimension to the sinister evil surrounding an ongoing conflict that builds a crescendo of suspense.Eadon has done his research on the locale of this rural town in central Texas. He has a background in corporate experience and is well qualified to "spin this yarn" of corporate and personal greed, manipulation, and revenge.Eadon demonstrates a masterful skill for character development and plot movement. He uses a remarkable cast of characters to create suspense in this mysterious, complex novel. This is a great read for mystery lovers and for those who enjoy stories of corporate intrigue.I was spellbound from the prologue right through to the unexpected dramatic conclusion.Book received free of charge.

    "A Consequence of Greed" is a fictional novel based in rural TX that weaves a mystery around a hearty bunch of southern characters (or "caricatures") in a sleazy corporate environment. Despite the fact that chapter datelines set the story in the early 1980's, the author has captured the essence of today's corporate politics and greed. Whether intentional or not, half the fun of reading this book is how accurately it portrays the difficulties and frustrations of a newcomer charged with changing the status quo or simply trying to do the right thing for a business. It's an intriguing "whodunit" with a supernatural twist, but this book goes beyond a good mystery to unravel. It's a must read for anyone who has ever been bitten by corporate politics or works for an unscrupulous boss . . . or even conducted "bidness" in Texas.

    I once read that a good author writes about what he knows. I have spent a considerable amount of time in the town where this story takes place. This author weaves a fantastic tale of fantasy with a rivoting fictional episode set in this town. I frequently had to stop reading and search my memory in order to separate fact from fiction. I could not put the book down! His depiction of the nature, attitudes, function and disposition of the townspeople are all on the mark. His picture of corporate function and internal politics we have all seen. A great read!
