|Plot Summary of The Towers of Greed|
Alexander Krakov is an international terrorist with a deadly plan to poison the water supplies of tens of millions of Americans. But to activate his plot he needs access to superfund sites all over the country.
Envirotech Coproration has been cleaning up toxic waste dumps for thirty years. It's the perfect cover for Alexander's activities.
Richard Blackwell is a corporate raider who strip mines companies to satisfy his greed. Envirotech could make him millions.
Maria Elena Zelenskaya is a chemical warfare specialist with her own motives for wanting Americans dead.
Nick Kuiper is an idealist, a man who believes the world is a great place and this is the best of all possible times to be alive. He founded Envirotech to clean up toxic waste dumps and was dubbed Saint Nicolas because he donates millions to charities.
When Richard steals Envirotech in a hostile takeover Nick vows to get his company back--a vow that places him directly in the way of Richard and Alexander.
Dixie Lebeauf is a con woman who agrees to help Nick get his company back. Together they set up a sting. But is she in love with him, or is he just another mark?
One company, two women and three men on a collision course with millions of lives in the balance.
