Sex can be the means to an end, but what happens at the end of the means? A heart-warming tale of alpha males facing a precipitous slide-for beta or for worse. Woody Steele is one of the richest men on the planet. Sadly one of his greatest assets has been recently downsized-sorry Casanova. Ivan Greenbriar, his fellow billionaire nemesis and creep extraordinaire, turns every activity into a pissing contest even when he's alone. Sargent Scanlon, a hero cop solely on the merits of getting shot in the nuts, doesn't know what fear is until he must match wits with his odious fourteen-year-old stepdaughter-she's a crime against humanity. Meanwhile, looking down from above is Colonel Pavlenko, the world's oldest practicing Stalinist (mutually assured destruction anyone?). This is a real time, real world story about manly men-and their women, women who are ready to break through the glass ceiling, even if they have to use their mate as a battering ram.
