The next installment/sequel, all will be revealed. You’ll need to understand the set-up and see the situation from both sides, of, Mr. Adams and that of the prosecution.
“Now that I look back on the whole incident, it’s sad how it never occurred to me that something was seriously wrong. Chris had never just called me out of the blue like that for nothing. However, as with everything else that occurred previously, I underestimated the meaning of that seemingly irrelevant detail.”
This quote from true story shares the concept of a famous cliché “Pay Attention to your gut feeling “for something could be terribly wrong. Time and time again we ignore the true essence of business which should never involve emotional attachment because that will be the beginning of your demise. When we begin to put too much trust in friends we blind ourselves to the potential exposure of betrayal some of which we could never recover from. “Timothy Adams” a.k.a. “Smitty’s” overconfidence led him to a fall he would forever reminisce.
