The Old Pirate : A Tom Walker MysteryDownloadable Audiobook - 2012
This fourth Tom Walker mystery addresses the issues surrounding the grandchild of a grocery baron who wants to upset the anonymity of the firm and family by moving into major liberal cities, such as Boston and New York. This will stir up media interest and criticism of their wealth and power, instead of quietly serving the small towns of America between Worcester, MA west to Gary, Indiana, and north to non-Detroit, Michigan and south to non-Louisville, Kentucky, without controversy as they have done for over 50 years. Young Henry, the grandchild, brings family battles to the surface between the desires to be relevant by moving into the big Eastern cities versus staying quietly, and boringly, in what many consider the hinterlands. Investment advisor John Calthrop and Tom Walker resolve matters for the family in a Patricia Highsmith manner (author of The Talented Mr. Ripley and Strangers on a Train).
