'The Mangans, having fought on the losing side of the American War of Independence, sailed to the Bahamas where they settled and prospered. Now, several generations later, Tom Mangan heads a lucrative business dedicated to the gratification of thousands of tourists - mostly American - who can afford the price of his luxury hotels. Tom's future looks even brighter with the injection of fifty million dollars of new capital provided by the Croesus-rich Cunninghams of Houston, Texas. The day Tom Mangan clinched the deal with his friend Bill Cunningham should have been the happiest of his life ... but it was the worst.'
