When he gets wind of a hostile biography planned for him by the investigative journalist Wilson Cleaver, he commissions his daughter's husband, John Glass, to pen the official line. But Glass's young researcher tries to blackmail him, and Glass is horrified, fearing that his own secrets, as well as Mulholland's, are at risk. He slings him off the project, only to hear from the NYPD that the man he has nicknamed 'the Lemur' has been found fatally shot. Silence cannot be bought - even by one of New York's wealthiest families."--Jacket."@en ;
