Abstract:

G-M-L Homes, manufacturers of bubble houses, the greatest advance in the history of architecture, have become the biggest and most powerful corporation in the history of commerce. Unfortunately, power, greed, and rampant criminal activity have taken over corporate principals. Charles Mundin, just a criminal lawyer, had unwittingly been pulled into the thick of things, when Norma Lavin—a very beautiful client of his—had been kidnapped by corporate operatives. With grim resolve Mundin, along with the help of a shrewd accomplice, Harry Ryan, laid the plans to get the girl back and expose the massive corruption of a giant corporation. But never had there been a more one-sided battle—a handful of nobodies, armed only with ingenuity and audacity, against the greatest concentration of financial and economic power in all history! The stakes, though, were larger than money or influence; they were the fulfillment of a dead man’s dream!
