The Gods Weep

Dennis Kelly

PaperBack (01 Mar 2010)

The Gods Weep focuses on the life of a CEO whose global business fragments around him as he loses his grip on reality. Colm has taken a lifetime to build his empire. With brutal rigor he has shaped the world around him in his own image. As time moves on his decision-making abilities increasingly fail him and the world he has created begins to fracture. The power struggle that ensues reveals the corruption and unstoppable forces at work in a world where corporate greed and national security frighteningly overlap.
