Greed: The Old Pirate: A Tom Walker Mystery
Publisher: Simply Magazine
Date: May 2012
Duration: 0 hours 48 minutes
The fourth Tom Walker mystery addresses the issues surrounding the grandchild of a grocery baron who wants to upset the anonymity of the firm and family by moving into major liberal cities such as Boston and New York, which will stir up media interest, criticism of their wealth and power, instead of quietly serving the small towns of America between Worcester, MA west to Gary, Indiana, and north to non-Detroit Michigan and south to non-Louisville, Kentucky, without controversy as they have done for over 50 years. Young Henry, the grandchild, brings family battles to the surface between the desire to be relevant by moving into the big Eastern cities versus staying quietly, and boringly, in what many consider the hinterlands. Investment adviser John Calthrop and Tom Walker resolve matters for the family in a Patricia Highsmith manner (author of The Talented Mr. Ripley and Strangers on a Train).
