Frauds and Bankruptcies
by Ephrem Carrier

A history of corruption and mismanagement plagues Linwood Bankruptcy. The Bankruptcy Human Resources office had decided that ex Army Officers and CRA officers would be good Official Receivers. Their skills did not match the requirements. This caused large anomalies in the Branch. The lack of special training in detecting malfeasance invited those with fraud in mind. The area of rehabilitation was forgotten. When Tim Crozier steps in as the new Federal Receiving Officer in Linwood, Ontario, he intends to restore order and justice to the office where violations had been prevalent. Tim uses his trained eye to follow the trail of malfeasance and right the wrongs left behind. Standing in the way of Tim’s good intentions include a bully lawyer, hidden assets, and an out-of-line trustee. With the help of his diligent assistants, Comfort and Sophie, Tim introduces a new era at Linwood Bankruptcy. His example results in sound training for all Official Receivers.

Ephrem Carrier served twenty years in the Royal Canadian Navy (up to Petty Officer First Class). After training he worked as a hospital administrator in Alberta and the Northwest Territories. He then served as a Governor General appointed Official Receiver representing the Superintendent of Bankruptcies in Edmonton and Halifax. Ephrem has previously been a qualified scuba diving instructor and private airplane pilot. He and his wife a Scot midwife volunteered for nearly 5 years with CUSO and CESO in other societies. A longtime storyteller and member of the Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick, Ephrem has published several articles, collaborated on the children’s book Pa’s Harvest (with Jan Andrews; Douglas and McIntyre, 2000), and authored a collection of short stories, Exciting World Adventures published by Friesen Press. Ephrem lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
