    RIPOFF NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON IN PAPERBACK AND KINDLE

    This funny crime caper about embezzling from the federal prison system is now available in paperback and Kindle. Amazon PRIME members download the Kindle edition FREE.

    Most people don't know that manufacturing in federal prisons is close to a billion dollar a year business. I know because for 4 years Caroline Rowe and I were Territory Manager Marketing Reps for the REAL prison manufacturing entity. We were inside factories, spoke to and dealt with inmates in the system and did lots of business...and I mean millions..with the military and other federal government entities.

    We worked for a private contractor that handled the marketing function nationally and saw lots of questionable things going on in the private enterprise. After they went bankrupt owing the prison system money Caroline and I thought what fun it would be to create a  RIPOFF scheme that could really work using our knowledge of how things worked.

    This is my 10th book and Caroline's first and we had a ball dreaming up our scam. A former FBI agent even said it could have worked. We were able to use lots of things that actually happened to us and even more from our imagination. If you like funny crime capers, twists and turns and surprise endings, you are going to love Kimberly, Kate and Cameron as their amateur undercover investigations often backfire but produce more than they ever expected to find.

    This photo was part of a Facebook post with photo credit for Denise Peacock-Lundell. I took one look at it and realized it was perfect for the new book WHO'S GOT THE MONEY? 
    Morgan St. James

    Jennifer, Kate and Cameron work for the Federal Association of Correctional Reform, or to put it simply the federal prison system. Kate and Cameron are marketing representatives for furniture manufactured in factories on the  grounds of nearly 100 prisons. Jennifer, on the other hand, is the controller for the marketing division. Her senses are zinging because she smells something rotten in the works but doesn't know what--just that it involves lots of money, so she confides in Kate and Cameron. After all, unlike the popular thought that prisons make license plates and that's small potatoes, in reality it is an EIGHT HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR business every year. She is sure someone has their hand in the till.

    The question is, Who's Got the Money? This funny book will lead you on a merry chase. Just as you think you've got it figured out, something else happens and the game is on again. Join the three bumbling Charlie's Angels wannabes as they peel away layer after layer of the plot.  


    NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK, DIGITAL EDITIONS COMING SOON
