Sample text

Don’t you want your work to do some good? I stood the smell hanging around Oiseau-Lyre as long as possible. The Hills are supposed to be separate and independent economic units; actually they’re shipments and expense padding and doctored tax returns. It goes deeper than that. You know the Hill slogan: SERVICE IS GOOD AND BETTER SERVICE IS BEST. That’s a laugh! You think the Hills care about serving anybody? ” “I never imagined the Hills were philanthropic organizations,” Wakeman said dryly. Benteley moved restlessly away from the two of them; they were watching him as if he were a public entertainer.
