The Capitol Game

The Capitol Game

A small, insignificant company on the edge of bankruptcy has discovered an alchemist’s dream: a miraculous polymer – paint it on a vehicle, any vehicle and voila, you have the equivalent of 30 inches of steel. With war raging in Iraq and Afghanistan, the polymer promised to save thousands of lives, promising to change the course of both wars as well as making its owner billons in profit. Enter Jack Wiley, a successful Wall Street banker somehow learns of the polymer and makes a plan. To make his dream come true, Jack Wiley goes to The Capitol Group, one of the country’s largest, richest and most powerful corporations. Jack and the Capitol Group will partner up for a quick, bloodless takeover of the small company that developed the polymer. A partnership made in heaven? Jack’s smarts and Capitol Group’s power and influence should be a marriage made in heaven, making them all rich beyond imagination. Once they own the patents they will steamroll Congress and the Pentagon to get the polymer into production, via a no-bid, fast-track contract. And it goes to plan until the Pentagon’s investigative service began nosing around.
