This memoir takes the reader on a roller coaster ride like no other, through misuse of power, success, failure, joy, sorrow and unrelenting pain. It is painful and shocking, outrageous, and unbelievable. This is a true story that will leave you waiting breathless to read all of this woman's solo journey, the Journey of a Soul. We begin with Nadine attending her father's funeral with her bodyguard. Nadine has achieved her goal of becoming a self-made millionairess by the age of thirty years old. She is president of The Idle Id. Beginning with a borrowed $250.00, she has built it into a global enterprise. Her largest customer is a giant conglomerate, G.D. Nichols department stores. She secures a major contract from Nichols. A powerful vice-president of Nichols, with connections to the mafia in Chicago, rapes her after a business dinner. He stalks and pursues her. She tries to avoid him by becoming Tour Photographer with a major rock group. In an intimate relationship with the road manager, she becomes addicted to cocaine. Nadine returns to discover her plant manager and his wife, her accountant, have skipped town, leaving her iron-on business in shambles including an accounting nightmare with unauthorized deductions using phony chargebacks involving over a hundred thousand dollars owing to her company. Many Nichols executives admit it is all an accounting error and promise she will receive her money immediately. Immediately turns into days, which turn into weeks, and then months. Nadine becomes suspicious and begins taping all telephone calls with anyone from G.D. Nichols. Executives of Nichols admit that the Vice-President, Buck Schwartz is behind the 'accounting error'. Promises are broken, more and more money is falsely deducted from the money owed to her. Desperate, she calls up the balance on a half-million dollar contract. Weird things happen. The chargebacks she had so painstakingly organized to determine the amount ordered are found the next morning all mixed together out-of-order. One morning, the tape machine only records her side of the conversation when she recorded a top executive with Nichols admitting Schwartz was behind the chargebacks. The executive admitted that another top executive with Nichols was up for an appointment to be President of the Federal Reserve, but in the vetting process, the FBI had discovered an accounting problem - and Nadine was the accounting problem! Nadine accuses Nichols in cahoots with government agencies of trying to kill her, inject her with cancer cells. There are several attempted Hijackings. She is beaten, harassed, and beset by strange occurrences. Everyone, including her employees think she is paranoid for no reason. Her ex-husband, Stephen, the lawyer, threatens to commit her. Nadine insists that Nichols is setting her up; doing all this to affect her credibility. Everyone thinks she is crazy and has suffered a nervous breakdown. She begins to doubt her own sanity. Stephen forces her into therapy with a Psychiatrist, who mysteriously dies during a session Nadine did not keep. Money, Deeds, or Sorrow is the story of one woman unknowingly caught up in conspiracy, accounting fraud, and attempted Hijackings, which involve a major retail department store, the Mafia, and the President of the United States. Someone attempts to blow up her Rolls Royce; the brake lines are cut. She is falsely arrested and tortured by the two 'special police sergeants'. Her father is murdered while she is held in jail. Nadine knows something; but doesn't know everything she knows. It is the story of one woman's strength, courage, and the will to survive tragedy and terror against all odds. Her struggles teach us that appearances are deceptive. You cannot always tell the good guys from the bad guys. This story is an indictment against power, greed, and lust; but most of all; it is an affirmation of the human spirit.
