The brash and resourceful St. Paul private investigator Holland Taylor takes on an unpromising embezzlement case; an elderly woman has been cheated out of her life savings. But when Taylor tracks down Levering Field, the unscrupulous businessman who handled her investments, he finds that more is at stake: Mrs. Gustafson's financial ruin is only one strand in a spider's web of fraud and intrigue.

With the help of his elegant attorney lady love and an eccentric computer-genius friend, Taylor starts probing under cover into Field's activities and soon finds that someone seems anxious to derail his investigation. The game quickly becomes serious when Field is found shot to death and Taylor first is suspected of the crime and then is shot at himself.

Frightened at the dangerously widening net but determined to get answers, Taylor follows a trail to computer records that reveal a list of prominent people with large investments in Fields' operations. Millions of dollars are at stake, as well as the reputations of the most powerful people in The Cities.

As a hired killer pursues him, Taylor races to put together the last pieces of the puzzle, find the money, and catch the people who are willing to do anything to stop him. Download and start listening now!

    " Another good Housewright book. Worth reading. Humorous mystery. Holland Taylor may not be as likeable character as Rushmore McKenzie but they are alike in many ways. I don't believe Housewright is writing any more in the Holland series. "

    " Good; Continuing character: Holland Taylor; PI makes life miserable for an investor who bilked a number of people, including a friend of his parents, until the tables get turned; roles and characters a bit confused and convoluted "

    " Schama is a master of telling historical stories. This book was hard to put down.

    See also Schama's BBC series, The Power of Art. Simply fantastic. "

    " Schama has the gift of making the distant proximate, the unthinkable possible. So far I especially like the chapter on the Dutch tendency to imagine penal punishment. I am not the first to say this, but he is one of our most gifted historians. "
