#bookreview – Circumstances of Childhood by John W. Howell

Robbie Cheadle has written an excellent review of Circumstances of Childhood. What is so pleasing is Robbie is a professional in Corporate Finance, and she was not disappointed in that element of the story. If you haven’t visited her blog, you should. She offers terrific writing, advice, inspiration, and baked goodies to die for. Thank you so much, Robbie.

Robbie's inspiration

Circumstances of Childhood

What Amazon says

When a former pro football star and broadcaster, now a Wall Street maven is accused of insider trading, will he be able to prove his innocence and expose those who are guilty?
Greg and his boyhood pal dreamed of big success in professional football and then later in business. Greg was the only one to live the dream. Now the founder of an investment fund Greg is faced with a routine audit finding by the SEC. The audit points to irregularities and all the tracks lead to Greg. The justice department hits him with an indictment of 23 counts of fraud, money laundering, and insider trading. His firm goes bust, and Greg is on his own.

His best friend knows he is innocent but has been ordered under penalty of eternal damnation not to help.
