You've known this writer through the years and you'll remember his last book The Tower since it teamed up with that inferno. Once again this is preplanned fiction about the litigation between Marty McCurdy and his uncle, Paul, over the family estate which Paul seems to have controlled too totally since the almost simultaneous deaths of Marty's father and grandfather. Rich, old Joe McCurdy had a stroke earlier on, but was it enough to destroy his judgment? While Marty's father crashed in his own plane, accidentally or otherwise? And why has the firm, McCurdy Aircraft, tailed off so badly--is someone trying to run it into the ground? Even if this is mostly business, family business, there are some personal values to be retrieved; as for romance, that's at a minimum. A middle-class commodity item but it retains your interest.
