“I have just completed this third tale of the King Family and the twists and turns they have faced for two generations. These books are rare.

All three are well written and keep your attention in every chapter. Douglass has a firm command of the financial and commodities markets, and the legal system. His dialogs are real. He paints great scenes and portrays action well.
If you enjoy a rich read with a genuine sense of the realities the characters inhabit then these three novels will not disappoint."
You are about to read the story of a thirty-three year old woman who chose to go to war with the greed and avarice of big business, the overwhelming power of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, and a billion dollar shareholder lawsuit against her. Simultaneously, she chose to fall in love with a man who was engaged to marry another woman.
Kerri King’s dedication and tireless work ethic had taken her to the top. She was the president and CEO of Iacardi & Sons, one of the largest and most successful commodity trading companies in the world. Everything was perfect, until the company was nearly decimated by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Tormented by the loss of all but three of the company’s New York employees, and driven to provide a source of income for the families and loved ones of the Iacardi employees who died on that terrible day, she begins the fight to rebuild the company.
Virtually all of the cards and circumstances are stacked against her. The company is broke. Charles and Mario Iacardi, the company’s founders and financial providers, are dead. Peter Tavaris, Walter Deaks, and Billie Dukes, the three surviving New York employees, are vehemently opposed to Kerri’s continuing leadership. Enerco, a gigantic Houston based energy trading company, conspires to purchase Iacardi & Sons, and employs every dirty trick in the corporate playbook to accomplish that objective. Desperate to salvage value for their Iacardi stock, the shareholders launch a billion dollar lawsuit against Kerri, and vote to have her removed as president. In her quest to provide financial relief to the estates of deceased Iacardi employees, Kerri choses to give away to the Iacardi estates every cent of the fortune accruing from her father’s tainted trust. Her decision triggers disastrous consequences doled out by the Internal Revenue Service.
Kerri’s troubles are not confined to the corporate world. Just when she thinks she has at last found the love of her life, she is horrified to receive an invitation to his wedding in Naples, Florida, on New Years Eve, December 31, 2001. The wedding is like no other she, or any of the invitees, have ever attended.

Kerri’s War is the third book in the King Trilogy and another Stephen Douglass masterpiece!- I didn’t want this Trilogy to end.
Kerri King is now the President and CEO of Iacardi and Sons. Due to her natural keenness and instinct for the trading in the commodity markets, she has become a legend on Wall Street.
Kerri’s War begins when the terrorist attack on September 11, 2011, hits the World Trade Center in New York, hitting the South Tower, in the spot where Iacardi and Sons New York offices are. The attack decimates the New York headquarters, killing 338 of the 342 employees. Only four survived. Three of them were in London at the time. Peter Tavaris, Iacardi’s most senior trader, Walter Deaks, and Billie Dukes, watched the event unfold on CNN from their hotel room in London. Kerri Pryor was at home, in bed with a virus. She also watched, in shock as she realized that all of those people whom she had known and cared about were...
This is the third and final book in the King Trilogy. If at all possible it was better then the first two which I loved. Again the action is non stop and at times heart stopping! The events of 911 figure prominently in this novel. A company, with the exception of 4 people is decimated. Corporate intrigue, all too common in our investment world interspersed with corporate greed and shenanigans will have you thinking twice about putting your hard earned money onto investments. Kelli King, the President of the decimated company wants to help all the families--she has the means and against all odds finally rids her family of the ill gotten gains of Servito, her father's wife's first husband. But against all the odds will Kelli ever find true love and peace in her life? What is the cost of her honesty and integrity? Read this entire trilogy from Book 1 to Book 3 and read this fascinating account of a family over generations.
This is the third and last story of "The King Trilogy." I've read the first two, which are excellent, but this one is the BEST! I loved it! In this last episode, Kerri King has become legendary on Wall Street. She is now the president and CEO of Iacardi and Sons, commodities brokers, with offices in the South Tower of the World Trade Center. She should be at work today, Tuesday, but she's down with a with a severe case of influenza. It's September 11, 2001. Her life is spared, but her company is being ripped and torn apart as the building is struck by a huge hijacked Boeing 767, Flight 175. In London, Peter Tavaris, a senior trader for Iacardi postpones the conference so he can follow the news of the NYC disaster. He has frequently been passed over by Charles Iacardi for senior management positions and also as president in favor of Kerri King. He hates women, especially Kerri and has a vindictive core. Kerri's dad, Mike King, and his wife Karen arrive home to Muskoka,...
