"Boland scores big with this tale of complicated money maneuvering and family strife": Kirkus Reviews. Richard Welles, youngest member of a prominent Maryland investment banking family, takes a sour pride in his knack for pressuring the firm's clients to reveal all they know about upcoming business deals. When a Gulf Coast company that provides boat service to offshore drilling platforms tilts toward bankruptcy, Welles discovers a hidden menace whose ultimate targets include his family and a colleague with whom he has fallen in love. "Intriguing . . . [Boland] excels at rendering epiphanies and, more impressively, in the painstaking creation of a sympathetic character from a dense tangle of inner conflicts": Publishers Weekly. First paperback edition.
