A High Finance Banking Crisis - The Whistleblower Affair

Updated on August 23, 2014

Enter the Whistleblower

He has tried the official routes for reporting the bad practice and has gotten nowhere. Now he feels he has no other option than to enter the clandestine corridors of the 'Whistleblower'.

Spilling the beans on the activities of someone in such a high position of authority is not going to be easy, he has to gather his evidence, find the right person to take his story to and get his timing right.

The process begins, but the director is nobody's fool and he soon recognizes where the threat of exposure is coming from. Determined to protect his position he sets about demolishing the credibility of the 'Whistleblower'.

With a lifelong career in 'corporate greed' the rogue director is not about to roll over and watch everything he has worked towards be taken away without a fight.

So who will come out on top. The 'whistleblower' with good intentions and integrity or the 'rogue director', a man with no integrity and no regard for customers, colleagues or even regulatory authorities?

Climbing the Corporate Ladder

The Whistleblower Affair is a fictional story that describes the shenanigans of a rogue director operating in the worlds biggest bank 'Marlings'.

A man with no scruples, he is is prepared to go to any lengths to ensure he lines his own pockets with ever higher salary and bonus payments.

He has total disregard for the bank's customers and a similar view towards colleagues in this 'high finance' industry. There is evidence of the inappropriate selling to customers of products they neither need or want, of fixing interest rates to ensure the bank's profits soar, along with the executive payouts, and of any colleagues that don't play along with the corrupt policies soon finding themselves undermined and marginalized.

But one employee has had enough, having witnessed the banking crisis of 2008 he knows at least one man who has clearly flouted all the rules for personal gain, a person that should have known better.

Following 'The Carcassonne Affair', Jonathan Veale takes you on an excursion into the world of 'high finance' and 'banking'. A little different to the world of the Irish horse racing criminal fraternity, but written in the same inimitable style.

A Writer's Writer

Jonathan has been involved in the world of book publishing for a good few years and has learned a thing or two along the way. He has worked as a professional editor and is happy to help out both new and established writers finalize their books ready for publication.

He is of the old school and believes all books should meet the standards required of traditional publishers before being offered to the public, but he also recognizes that the eBook and 'print-on-demand' options offer a wonderful opportunity to independent authors struggling to find a traditional publishing option.

Consequently his books are offered in a mix of paperback and digital format, as you will see above.

      Glad you like the look of him, he does like to ruffle a few feathers, especially when he feels people that should know better are misbehaving. Thanks for the comment.

      Good review Brian RS. I hadn't heard of him but now I will definitely try one. It IS always a treat to find a new author you like, especially when he already has more than one book out. Thanks so much for sharing this.

      You are welcome Merrci, he is a good writer if you like easy reading and a bit of humour thrown in, which is his normal style. He has had me chuckling on more than one occasion. Although this one is a little more serious than his other books.

      No problem mumsgather, actually has become very topical since the Bank of America's record fine for helping to cause the 2008 financial crash. Really is making me think how close to the truth this book is :-)

      Hi Brenda, actually it is a bit more than just being about business and finance, it is about personal greed, corruption and being willing to go to any lengths to incriminate others in order to protect a privileged & powerful position. A total abuse of power and quite a good book all in all. Thanks for dropping in.

      Hi Betty, yes it's a nice easy read and fast moving. Plus very topical at the moment although the topic is an English bank not an American one.

      Hi Pawpaw, it is an interesting read, you have to make your mind up if it is just corporate greed, bad enough, or actually corporate crime. Thanks for the comment.
