Promises to Keep

(1982)
A novel by

 
Jim Kilpatrick is hired by the Stapleton and Slocum families--with a $50,000 retainer--to write a history of these wealthy folks. . . which may or may not whitewash them in the eyes of the second-class citizens who have been underpaid workers in the Stapleton/Slocum textile mills. Kilpatrick is a fading idealist whose son Kevin was fragged by his own troops in Vietnam. He also has had a drinking problem, walked out on his wife and four remaining children, and quit his salaried job to become a freelance speechwriter and would-be novelist. As you'd expect, Kilpatrick's research turns up all manner of skeletons tumbling out of closets
