Synopsis: The Corporate Dragon is not a living being - neither human nor animal.  It's true identity is General Accounting Ledger #701-1 a/k/a the Corporate Dragon.  It's mere existance in the Corporation's accounting system invites Management employees, who have any inclination toward dishonesty, to manipulate it for personal benefit.  701-1 beckons to such employees to utilize it as an untraceable method to embezzle funds from the Company.  Eventually the Dragon rises up and strikes out at the perpetrators - destroying their careers and lives.  The primary Protagonist, Robert Sterling Powers, is a middle aged Corporate Executive employed in a United States multi-billion dollar Commercial Finance Corporation named TMA, Inc. headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  He is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota as a TMA Branch Manager.  In that position he is pressed into the task - by Senior TMA Management - of unraveling a multi-million dollar fraudulent scheme concocted by a few unscrupulous TMA Executives.  Over a period of months he and his Fiancee, Penny Olson, travel extensively throughout the United States visiting key TMA Company Branch Offices of which there are a total of thirty six.  Before the unraveling of the scheme is completed, Powers and Olson receive death threats from the perpetrators and he is physically attacked by two hired hit-men in a dimly lighted parking lot.  Due to his expertise in a special form of Martial Arts he survives the attack.  For his and Olson's personal security, he deems it necessary to install a highly sophisticated Electric Eye Alarm System surrounding his private residence near Minneapolis.In all there are ten perpetrators involved.  One committs suicide, another suffers a fatal heart attack - and the other eight are dealt unusual and severe punishment for their sins against the Company.  The Corporate Dragon is slain but leaves as it's legacy an unsolved mystery that perplexes TMA Senior Management.

About the Author: Schneider is a retired Corporate Finance Executive.  He chose early retirement from Itt Corp after ten years of employment.  Previously he served fourteen years in Executive positions at Finance America, a former wholly owned subsidiary of Bank of America.  During his many years of employment and association with U.S. National Financial Corporations, he lived and worked on the East and West Coasts of the United States.  The various executive positions he held required him to travel to many major cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.  Over a period of four decades he was immersed in every aspect of the complexities of Corporate Finance accounting controls, management styles of high Corporate Officers, court room legal procedures and conflicts between lawyers of opposing parties.From 1970 through 1993 he owned several sailboats and became a very accomplished sailor.  He qualified for and held a United States Coast Guard license 'to carry passengers for hire' for twenty years.  Among his experiences aboard sailing craft are cruises in the Caribbean and four of the United States Great Lakes.
