Two friends grew up with a dream of becoming professional football players and then successful businessmen. One of the friends makes a dream come true. The other does not. Greg is a former pro football star and broadcaster, now a Wall Street maven and is accused of mismanagement of some of his firm’s money. The question that needs an answer is 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 as the perpetrator. The justice department hits him with an indictment of 23 counts of fraud, money laundering, and insider trading. As can be expected from this kind of accusation 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. He would like to make Greg’s troubles go away, but his hands are tied.

If you enjoy stories of riches to rags, redemption, brotherly love, and a little of the paranormal, Circumstance of Childhood will keep you riveted.
