Clayton Boudreaux has enjoyed a lot of success in his life as a self-made millionaire by 25, media mogul, and restaurateur, but none of that defines him. From a humble background in New Orleans’ French Quarter, to the steel and glass towers of Manhattan, he’s never lost sight of life’s most valuable assets: friends.
Even as his media firm enjoyed slow but steady growth, expanding from its Louisiana base to the Northeastern corridor, Clayton never forgot the countless people who made it all possible. At a time when most of his peers run their businesses with cold, calculated, and short term mindsets, he’s remained true to principles that seem almost quaint in comparison: Loyalty. Integrity. Fairness.
And he never shies away from a scrap if it means backing up his beliefs, or his friends.
Good thing, because the mother of all scraps is coming Clayton’s way, courtesy of a young woman who made a favorable impression on him as an intern at his company a couple years back: Janice Lee. Her low tolerance for lying and cowardice in high places reminded him of himself. He always knew she’d eventually break a huge story, he just didn’t anticipate being smack in the middle of it.
The enemies Janice and her friend Alex Hawking bring to Clayton’s doorstep are far, far more powerful than any mere criminal or vulture capitalist, and they will test Clayton’s ideals like never before.
