The villainous Clyde Nickerson at last receives his come uppance. Ernie Grey dies in a roller blading accident at age 70.

About the Author:

Dwight Foster, the author of Shattered Covenants, is a native of Minnesota who transferred to New York City in1980. He retired as a consulting partner from an international public accounting firm  in January 1990 to forman executive search firm. Shattered Covenants is a first novel, which represents an eight year writing project dealing with the passing of leadership in a professional services firm. Twilight & Endgame is the final book in a series of free standing novels narrating the formation, rise, decline, and fall of  McKenzie Barber, a fictional global management consulting firm. Earlier books in the series include: . Present & Past Imperfect . The Road to McKenzie Barber . The Consultant . The Chairman . The Partner . The House of Harwell Shattered Covenants deals withthe  passing of CEOs (i.e. kings) and their ultimate effect on the careers and lives of the courtiers, and rank and file professionals who follow the leadership of the CEO. The author has spent his business career in the consulting industry, and for the past twelve years, has headed up a well-recognized executive search firm. Dwight Foster has published previously in management studies and magazine articles and is quoted from time to time in the national press. His experience in the practice of executive search and familiarity with  organization and business models over the past thirty years provided the motivation to write as weeping novel. The primary narrator of Shattered Covenants, Joseph Baxter, Jr., is the son of a labor martyr from Minnesota's Iron Range who rises to a Board Room world traveling, executive compensation consultant. Baxter is a modern day Candide who develops the cunning to survive in a ruthlessly competitive business world. Dwight Foster is a University of Minnesota Alumnus, the father of two adult children, and is married to Dorothy Choitz Foster, a well-known journalist and consultant to the cosmetics and fragrance industry. The Fosters make their home in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.
