(From the publisher):
Robert Fox is a junior partner in the prestigious Wall Street firm Castle and Lovett. At thirty-five, Fox has leveled off in his profession, and the place he had worked so obsessively to make for himself suddenly seems far from perfect. He is in love with a beautiful woman who will not marry him, the young associates in the firm are nipping at his heels, and to top it off, more that three million dollars is missing from the estate of one of his most important clients. Fox's search for the missing Sifford millions-and for his own sanity and happiness-leads him into a sometimes dangerous exploration of the many factions that lay claim to the immense city where he works. Who really owns New York? The old families, with their town houses, country estates, and great art collections? The new brash entrepreneurs who are "into" real estate development, interior design, and "macho banking"? Or is it the strange sinister characters who hide in the out-of-the-way, darkly lit crevices of the city?
