Cash McCall Author:Cameron Hawley Cash McCall is a vastly intriguing man, a twentieth century adventurer who carries on his fabulously successful buying and selling of companies behind a suspiciously secret screen of anonymity. But is he really the sharp-dealing vulture that rumor makes him? or is he only exercising the right of free enterprise that we all say is the very founda... more »tion of our American way of life? Many accuse him, a few support him, no one really understands him. Lory Austen, with her love to help her, comes closer than anyone else to solving them mystery of this strangely fascinating man.
The questions raised by the career of Cash Mc call are hardly more vital, however, than those suggested by the lives of characters more familiar but no less intriguing -- by Grant Austen as he tries to decide whether or not to cash in a capital gain and sell the company that has been his whole life -- by the conflict between morality and legality that keeps the lights burning late in the law offices of Winston Conway and Judge Torrant -- by the soul-searching questions that Will Atherson asks himself as president of the bank and the inheritor of his family traditions -- by Dr. Bergmann whose research foundation is all that matters -- by Maud Kennard who feels the same way about Hotel Ivanhoe -- by Gil Clark, the young management consultant, as he struggles to find an honest and productive way of life in today's confusing world -- by Miriam Austen in her lonely quest for the happiness that should be found in marriage.
Here is a novel that will leave you with more than the satisfaction of having read a dramatic and exciting story. This is a book that will make you think -- not only about your own goals in life but about the motivations that impel your friends and neighbors.« less
