Wade Sherman ***
Wade Sherman, a severely injured Marine hero, is discharged. Upon
returning home his cousin, Bob Slade, a very successful pimp, is in turmoil
because of a changing political situation, ie, the people whom he has paid to keep his flourishing businesses going are about to be tossed out of office. Knowing this will destroy him, he is in a desperate search for an out. The idea of bringing his business under the auspice of a church comes to mind.
But who could start and run it? Wade Sherman, but there is a serious problem. Wade is a former proud Marine officer and gentleman; holder of
the Congressional Medal of Honor and the city turned out for his homecoming. Bob, however, is an accomplished conniver. Using his
contacts and guile he defeats every move Wade makes to get on his feet,
thus forcing him into building this church. What a church! The church titles express it: Wade becomes The Great Schaziam: Bob is the Lesser Noble: One of the main girls is the head of the church' Unhearlded Order of Promiscuous Maidens. Built into it are Bob's "comfort" chambers.
