The Love of Money is THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.
Joe Phillips and Maryanne Larkin -- a police detective and bank trust officer -- team up to solve three financial crimes in the Florida Panhandle:
Was it suicide--or murder?
A poor young black man, winner of a $23 million Florida lottery, is found dead in his bed with a pistol in his hand―an apparent suicide. Detective Lieutenant Joe Phillips romances banker Maryanne Larkin while they investigate ―- and discover a wholly unexpected answer!
Who was importing drugs?
The marina of a Florida Panhandle town is awash in more than salt water. Somebody local is smuggling in drugs from Mexico―but who? Joe and Maryanne, now married, investigate a murder that leads them to an intricate money laundering scheme with a shocking twist.
Who poisoned Emily?
A wealthy Florida widow is poisoned--KGB style. Joe and Maryanne probe motives of a dysfunctional family and their prominent local lawyer--each of whom is desperate for money. The outcome is horrendous!
Three intriguing mysteries, with a wealth of financial skullduggery. Bonus: Along the way you can painlessly learn a lot about loans, mortgages, letters of credit, trusts and estates, foreign exchange trading, money laundering, bank mergers, and other banking arcana. All this . . . plus money, murder, and mayhem!
“This is a really good read.” -- wife of a commercial lending officer
