Abstract:

The brash and resourceful St. Paul private investigator Holland Taylor takes on an unpromising embezzlement case, an elderly woman has been cheated out of her life savings. But when Taylor tracks down Levering Field, the unscrupulous businessman who handled her investments, he finds that more is at stake, Mrs. Gustafson's financial ruin is only one strand in a spider's web of fraud and intrigue. With the help of his elegant attorney lady love and an eccentric computer-genius friend, Taylor starts probing under cover into Field's activities and soon finds that someone seems anxious to derail his investigation. The game quickly becomes serious when Field is found dead and Taylor first is suspected of the crime and then is shot at himself. Frightened at the dangerously widening net but determined to get answers, Taylor follows a trail to computer records that reveal a list of prominent people with large investments in Field's operations.
