Fred Fuller is a poor but ambitious college student with dreams of a future in politics. He sees himself as being an honest and moral person but when confronted with the chance of a lifetime, not once . . . but twice he discovers the shallowness of his morality. While on his job as a messenger for Bank USA he goes into a deserted bank and is confronted by an open vault filled with millions of dollars. The first time, unprepared to take advantage of the situation, he calls his boss to report it. But when it happens again Fred's moral values are shattered as he takes the money and attempts to flee the country. Twice Tempted, Bill Manchee's first novel, was inspired by actual events that occurred to the author. Sex, greed, and moral ambiguities are the choice ingredients in this thriller set in California in the sixties. A wild ride of an adventure, for both Fred and the readers.
