A middle-aged laywer discovers the shady business dealings of his son and tries to remedy the situation.
Mortimer uses a lot of similes, but they're usually good ones. It seemed to me that a few of the characters could have been dialled back and a few others brought more to the fore. But the protagonist was a guy I could root for, despite his imperfections (and a personality so unlike mine). It's an attention-keeping read, though the ending could have been better.
