The Rise & Fall of the Syndicate
The Sheridan Syndicate engaged in illegal activities for profit. While sometimes referred to as the mafia, mob, gang, or the underworld, The Syndicate had no equal. Under Mona Moore’s leadership, the organization accumulated some $100 billion in capitol; provided the umbrella under which criminal activities operate; all for the sole purpose of granting the means to an end – control and power. The Meddstone Drilling Company and the Royal Diamond Casino & Resort were legitimate business organizations that provided cash flow and an avenue for money laundering. They too fell within scope of the Syndicate.
The extravagant lifestyle and accumulation of wealth were mere by-products. Underground drug traffic, money laundering, robbery, murder, blackmail, political misdeeds, investments, and inflows from outside investors led to the ultimate goal – control and power, an addiction that Mona Moore wholeheartedly admits.
While Mona maintained tight control of the Syndicate’s operations, her twin sons, Ty and Sky, assisted her. The enforcers, Kema and Anisa, protected the family and added to the core of professionals who ran the organization. Business associates, criminals, soldiers, policeman, politicians, investors, and other centers of influence made the system work.
In addition to the federal government, the Cuadras and Mendoza Cartels were the Syndicate’s largest competitors. It was their job to destroy, lock up, or kill members of the Sheridan Syndicate. The Carlos Cuadras family, the Mendoza brothers and a large supporting cast controlled the Cartels. Drug traffic had broadened domestic terrorist activities, reaching into the intentional communities. Blood spilled could fill a river running from the eat to the west coast, spilling over into the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean.
This is a fictional story about control and power, accompanied by sex and violence, a lustful lifestyle, the willingness to die for your cause , and the hope of a lasting legacy.
