Your ComeUppance

by Edmund Fitzgerald

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Welcome to the here and now. Welcome to the land of dodgy officials, greedy bankers, loutish football stars, chavish misogynists and ʽunbangupableʼ career cheats. It seems everybody is at it. And these toe-rags do it for one simple reason: because they can. They’ll keep getting away with their abhorrent behaviour because what they do isn’t always illegal; just obnoxious, loathsome and plain antisocial. For which there exists no effective remedy. No redress. These selfish individuals are the new untouchables. But enough is enough. When true justice fails the people, the people turn to the new kid on the block: YourComeUppance. The new vox populi. An altruistic white knight, or a darkening nightmare? Whichever it is, you really wouldn’t want your name to feature in the YCU Hall of Shame. Because that’s a serious life threatening proposition ... as some creatures out there are discovering to their ultimate cost. Maybe there is justice in this world after all. Justice – YCU style.
Description
Welcome to the here and now. Welcome to a world where dodgy officials dip their beaks in the public till, and where greedy bankers continue to profit from the inane investment strategies which have brought the banking system – and society in general – to its knees. Come bear witness to the obscenely remunerated football stars who think they are God´s gift, but act like common louts. Where chavish misogynists ditch their freshly pregnant playthings and move on to debase fresh meat, and where ʽunbangupableʼ career cheats and criminals walk the streets, encouraged by their mind-numbingly successful appeals to the out-of-touch wigs presiding over the European courts. It seems everybody is at it. And these toe-rags do it for one simple reason: because they can. They´ll keep getting away with their abhorrent behaviour because what they do isn´t always illegal; just obnoxious, loathsome and plain antisocial. For which there exists no effective remedy. Against a background of economic collapse, high unemployment and gloomy news in general, there are too many of a privileged position who derive their pleasure from urinating over the rest of us while they smirk into their glasses of Dom Perignon. No retribution. No redress. These selfish individuals are the new untouchables. But enough is enough. When true justice fails the people, the people turn to the new kid on the block: YourComeUppance.com. The new vox populi. An altruistic white knight, or a darkening nightmare? Whichever it is, you really wouldn’t want your name to feature in the YCU Hall of Shame. Because that’s a serious life threatening proposition ... as some creatures out there are discovering to their ultimate cost. Maybe there is justice in this world after all. Justice – YCU style.
About the author
Edmund Fitzgerald (Greenwich, London) began his professional life as a trainee management accountant for an emblematic, though now defunct, airline. He spent the next couple of decades gnawing his way up the corporate food chain, ascending to the agreeable billet of country manager to the Spanish branch of a successful software house. Having honed his creative writing talents on a myriad of poetic emails, inspired management reporting and imaginatively worded submissions as to why sales targets were not being met, Edmund decided to go the whole hog and immerse himself, full time, in the world of fiction writing. Your ComeUppance is his first novel to hit the virtual bookshelves. Madrid has been Edmund´s home for much of the last fifteen years. Due to the precarious and mostly impecunious nature of his new-found profession, the author has redoubled his resolve not to marry, not to have kids, and not to own a Mercedes.
