Hardback with paper dust jacket - both in excellent condition; clean pages; Blue board with gold title on red spine // That incendiary mix of sex and money simmers quietly on these pages until brought by the skillful handling of this pseudonymous author to a climactic, if somewhat predictable, flashpoint. Stark "Tommy" Thompson III, a divorced, unambitious lawyer in his old-money family firm, is given to mild womanizing until Kitty Goldmark, a young widow and entrepreneur, brings sexual obsession and a shady, complex money-making plan into his life. Sex with Kitty often has a violent edge; her inside information arouses him further. Starting his own firm to handle trusts and estates, Tommy covers his tracks as he makes lots of money. When a keen-eyed MBA with a provocative computer printout asks Tommy for a part of the action, Kitty places the young man with her brother Ted, a brash Wall Street hot-shot recently appointed head of an old investment banking firm. Kitty can convince Tommy to do anything: they get married, they commit murder. Then Tommy finds himself in charge of a family fortune much more vast than he'd imagined, although nothing, it appears, was ever beyond the imagining of Kitty or her brother.
