Christopher has made many enemies in his life, and one of them owns a competing architectural firm that is in financial trouble. Oscar lets Christopher buy a half share of his firm because he can see no other way out of his difficulties, but everyone warns him that Christopher will only hurt him again.
Then, as things start improving in Oscar’s firm, they start going wrong in Christopher’s; someone is tampering with the retirement funds. The financial troubles are followed by a hit-and-run murder and then other attacks on people close to Christopher. While dealing with these things and being confronted with people who resent his past actions and suspect he may be causing the new problems himself, he struggles to keep his heart condition hidden and under control.
The steps that Christopher takes to try and right the wrongs he has done in the past make all the difference. Some of the people who had the most reason to hate him end up being the ones who help bring the culprit to justice.
Settle yourself down for a nice afternoon read with this short novel. The twists and turns will keep you involved. You may guess who the bad guy is, but the ending will be a complete surprise.
