These cover blurbs pretty well say it all about this novel, based on the CBC TV series of the same name written by Douglas Bowie. The book describes the rise of James Munroe and the growth of his corporate empire in broad sweeps, mainly using stereotypes. There are few surprises, as the plot progresses in predictable pot-boiler fashion. It clearly is an adaptation from television and adds little to our understanding of the characters in the series.
