About this title

Synopsis:

Annette Chambers is a billionaire with big problems. American companies have been on the global chopping block for decades and now they are coming for the private and vast array of companies that she owns. Annette is the grantor of the joint trust between herself and her estranged and dead husband, and a clause demanding she pass the guardianship of her vast empire to a family heir is up on her seventy-fifth birthday, which is a brief year away. The problem? Her two trust fund, trampy children have spent the last twenty-three years trying to liquidate the private empire. At stake are no less than the jobs of thousands of Americans. What’s a blue-blooded patriot to do? Caesar’s Cat, Robert Lance’s hilarious new novel, demonstrates with each comic twist that there are many ways to skin a nation-enfeebling cat. With satire and a none to subtle slap, Caesar’s Cat is an engaging ‘feel good’ yarn about the American character. As co-executor of the trust with her dead husband's law firm, a stalemate ensues between Annette and her lame brood. The solution? She adopts a competent heir that will be her proxy and continue Annette's legacy. In fact, she has been planning this for years. She secretly sent an Irish Catholic kid, Sean Bennigan, who is from the Bronx, through Harvard Law School, setting him up in business afterwards. Now, all Sean has to do to become fabulously wealthy is to agree to the kooky scheme. What could possibly go awry? Inspired by the famous fable of Caesar's Cat, in which Julius Caesar adopts his precocious nephew, but leaves his treasure to his wife’s cat, this rollicking, wry novel charts the course of Sean's strange new world, as it becomes increasingly complicated by his new social elevator, which is stuck between floors. The hard working middle class Bennigans have their own perspective, which Mr. Lance injects like a Brinks truckload of comedic episodes. Just when you think your funny bone healed, here they come again. To sweeten the pot, a beautiful woman, Celeste Remy, has been hired as a temp in his law office, and sparks fly...in one direction, at least. The mysterious Celeste has her own way with dealing with slick come-ons. Sean’s antics in front of her will have you laughing and saying, “I can’t believe he really did that.” With Celeste at his side, the two embark on an accidental journey rife with one wild hairpin curve after the next. Keeping Annette's children at bay, and navigating the murky seas of adult adoption, Sean and crew wind up in circumstances that are impossible to predict, and certain to entertain. Sean is dancing in front of the crosshairs of his new brother and sister, who will stop at nothing to eliminate him before he can take control of the Chambers enterprise. . With wit, romance, and canny plotting, Caesar’s Cat takes a spirited, satirical swipe at this country’s outsourcing predicament. Annette proves that with a little ingenuity, clever deception, and devious gamesmanship, her slim chance of preserving an American legacy just might work. It’s certain to strike a chord, and tickle a humor bone, with anyone who loves a seriously funny, riotously fast-paced read.
