The Multima Scheme
by Gary D. McGugan


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE: Suspense, fiction


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


Can Multima Corporation withstand another attack from organized crime? While billionaire John George Mortimer copes with treatment for cancer, the accomplished CEO must also ward off challenges for control of his sprawling fictional American empire both from within the company and from nefarious powers operating outside the law.

The Multima Scheme is a fast-paced account of the lengths to which organized crime can infiltrate large global corporations and seize control of respected businesses to conceal activities that are both illegal and immoral but generate billions. It’s also a story of survival – how individuals and organizations might react under intense pressures and the ease with which people can cross lines between what’s legal and what’s not.

Using his knowledge of how large multinationals operate – accumulated over 40 years working with major corporations around the world – author Gary D. McGugan weaves a tale of intrigue using a writing style that readers will find hard to put down once started.

EXCERPT:


Howard Knight felt his pulse quicken as he glanced down at his watch. All hell was about to break loose in New York. His secretary would tell the waiting FBI agent something like, “It’s probably just a traffic delay. Mr. Knight is always punctual and will be here soon for your scheduled meeting.” Likely, she’d also offer coffee, and no doubt make small talk while they both waited.

In a few minutes, she’d give up and call Knight’s spouse at home. His wife would repeat the exact lie he told her the day before while his limousine sped towards Page Field in Fort Myers, Florida. She’d tell his secretary Knight wasn’t actually in New York. He was away solving some sort of business crisis in Brazil. Almost certainly, his assistant would become alarmed and immediately contact the pilots of the company’s jet.

It might take her some time to reach them. Both the pilot and co-pilot would be gradually recovering from a period of incapacitation but would eventually tell the secretary what little they could remember. They wouldn’t have much to divulge though, and would remain groggy throughout the rest of the morning.

AUTHOR Interview:

What is the sweetest thing someone has done for you?
‘Sweetest’ is not an adjective people would normally find in my vocabulary. But I value unexpected gestures and find people honor me with unplanned signs of kindness almost every day.

How would you spend ten thousand bucks?
I would probably buy two quality dividend-paying equities that could generate income of about $500 per year for the next 25 years!

Where do you get your best ideas?
During my business career, I had the opportunity to visit more than 35 countries and counted more than 10,000 personal contacts in Outlook records. Remembering those people, listening to their stories, and reading about events in the real-world usually fuel my imagination about what might be possible.

What comes first, the plot or characters?
In my stories the characters come first because I build them around the goings-on at Multima Corporation. (Pronounced Mul-tee-ma). But my very first mission was to structure the fictional empire. I elected to create a corporation with three operating divisions so I could have John George Mortimer live near its headquarters in Fort Myers, Fl. – one of my favorite small cities. I then wanted three operating divisions located elsewhere, so Mortimer wouldn’t get involved in their day-to-day operations. I wanted to make him a CEO who lets his executives manage their areas of responsibility without a lot of input from him.
I chose a supermarket division because I worked in several and have a good understanding of the business. I wanted a financial services division because I spent more than 20 years working in that milieu. Finally, I sought a technology component because I became fascinated with companies in Silicon Valley, providing financial services to some of the largest names in computing.
Experts like to remind us to write about things we know. Multima Corporation lets me create a tale about environments that I know, understand, and enjoy.

What does your main character do that makes him/her special.
John George Mortimer is a remarkable fictional character. The self-made billionaire founded and built one of America’s most admired large companies. The Multima Scheme tells the compelling story of his struggles fighting both the ravages of male breast cancer and attacks on his business by organized crime.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:


A successful business leader, speaker, and author, my most recent work is an exciting novel, The Multima Scheme.

I'm in love with the same special lady for almost five decades. In turn, we love -- and are

incredibly proud of -- our daughter, our son, their spouses, and three remarkable grandchildren.

Family, friends, and hundreds of other wonderful people also populate my life, repeatedly creating rewarding experiences. I’ve had all this good fortune for many years, with reading and writing often playing integral roles.

I’ve loved reading as long as I remember and have enjoyed writing for just as long. For me, writing has taken many forms. Like most, it started with assigned essays as a student and then evolved with my business career. I’ve written letters, speeches, reports, ads, brochures, presentations, proposals, articles, and a blog. My first book was a work of non-fiction – NEEDS Selling Solutions – co-authored with my friend Jeff Allen.
