Excellent tale of money, power, and betrayal

Dec 17, 2016

(The second book in the Kindle County series)

Great character development and interesting take on legal/moral judgements mixed into family loyalties and family prejudices. I was enchanted by Sandy, the main protagonist, who is brilliant at law and emotionally frozen in his marriage. Complex market manoeuvers added interest and were not too confusing for an outsider.
