Blood, Money, Power, written by author, Michele Marie Tate, is a fictional, historical saga, based on a true story. It's a tale similar to those that shout at us from news headlines every day - how greed and political power has led to fraud and even murder.
Tate takes her readers back to the gilded times of William Randolph Hearst, Charlie Chaplin, Marion Davis and Gloria Swanson. Everything was gay and the champagne flowed freely at the many parties where celebrities and the wealthy rubbed elbows. But, beneath the gold and silver goblets lies a struggle of power and greed that no one talks about.
Tate did her research on the times and true characters revealed in Blood, Money, Power and even though the main characters in the book are fictional, they mix and mingle with some of the wealthiest and most powerful people of all time.
Blood, Money, Power follows the Preston family bloodline for three generations, and at the head of the family, Otto Preston emerges as a less than ethical, but powerful attorney who is determined to create a lasting legacy. Preston also has the baggage of an extremely painful past and must work hard to expunge it from his mind.
The Prestons move in and out of the Hearst castle in California, experiencing all the folklore that made it famous. They meet movie stars and business legends - some of the most powerful and wealthy in the world. Travel to Thailand unveils more intrigue and mystery as the characters become embroiled in a fight for truth, justice - and love.
Tate's new book has it all - illegal drug and diamond trades, the mafia and demonic people who think nothing of murdering for money and power. Amber and Charles are two characters in Blood, Money, Power who become involved in the seedy part of the tale through no fault of their own. They're deeply in love, but secrets from the past threaten to end what they've found together.
Political corruption through three generations is also reflected in Blood, Money, Power and that same corruption seems to be prominent in today's headlines. The epic tale is based on a true story that is actually still being investigated, and you'll be surprised at the "real" people who are on the edge of this powerful story.
Readers who love a good mystery, sprinkled with real and fictional characters, won't be disappointed in Michele Marie Tate's first book in a series that continues in her next book. The Preston bloodline will both intrigue and pique your interest in this powerful family. Blood, Money, Power will make you long to see who finally wins out and if justice will prevail.
