[moderate overall wear, some edge-soiling, blue mark on ffep; jacket chipped/edgeworn, bottom 1/2" of spine missing, original price marked over on front flap]. "A startling novel of men and women who strike a shrewd balance between moral bankruptcy and life on the gold standard. For the relatively large number of people who have never manipulated lives, indulged in sleight-of-hand with signed proxies, concocted unsavoury deals with relish, or committed sane relatives to mental institutions--but would like to know how the rich and ruthless do it--[this book] gives an engrossing opportunity to find out. Touched off by a baffling mystery of personalities, it pits the well-heeled against the well-heeled in a stunning expose of how they play their game. This story of the dangers and rewards of modern American life is presented against a background of the Middle West of 1939." The author's first novel.
