Wonderful Tale of Intrigue and Love In the Business Place
2 February 2003 | by pat-176See all my reviews

In this tale three women come to work in a large department store run by a kindly old gentlemen. The store which already has a male "Shark" is enriched by a new female "Shark" , Rita Massaro (played by Susan St James).Her vicious unscrupulous manipulations of events and people in the office lead,eventually, to her own downfall,romantically. One of her victims is Lee Rawlins, as the office manager, who does her job, reconciling strife between workers and supervisors. Meanwhile she has her own romance proceeding with Beau Galloway (Joe Penney). The acting by Barbara Eden, Susan St. James, and Joe Penney as principal actors is superb.There is a great deal of action, love and intrigue which make this a truly great story.I loved every minute of it. I feel that this tale, unfortunately, is to a certain degree, true to life.
