In this mystery Arthur Cathcart - a market researcher who loves his beautiful, successful wife - has his life torn apart by a sudden act of violence. Determined to find out who's responsible he hatches an elaborate scheme filled with false identities, complex business dealings, thugs and gangsters, and a beautiful woman.
Naturally Arthur has millions of dollars available to help him perpetrate his scheme. Most of the book involves detailed descriptions of how he pulled off these shenanigans; I found these hard to follow and not that interesting. However if you like to read about these kinds of complex schemes you'll probably like it.
