“ Truth is a fungible commodity where the price is established by the appetite of the accuser, the threat of exposure to the accused, and the amount of money available to negotiate.” - Martin Ruff, Protagonist

She Said. He Said.


A senior corporate executive in a fairy tale marriage flirts with a female executive in the same company.

After a number of romantic dinners, after-hour phone calls, and gifts willingly accepted, two very different realities unfold. The man believes he is well on the way to a consensual affair. The woman, under financial pressure from her insecure daughter and their father, a man with a drug dependency, envisions a large insurance payoff to silence her formal sexual harassment suit.

Soon, the harassment claim turns into a "she said-he said" survival of the fittest which the reader witnesses up-close and personal. In the end, there are surprising consequences for both the accuser and the accused, and unimaginable collateral damage to all the unwillingly participants drawn into the tawdry affair.

Inspired by true events.
