Jack and the Beanstalk (Matthew Hope, Bk 4)
Jack and the Beanstalk - Matthew Hope, Bk 4 Author:Ed McBain Jack McKinney's mother thought he was a tennis bum. His sister thought he was a cattle rustler. And McKinney himself thought he was going to turn a bankrupt snapbean farm into a paying operation. Never mind that in the sandy soil of Florida's West Coast, snapbeans were not a cash crop. — So on a steamy August Friday, the unemployed twenty... more »-year-old slapped down a $4,000 deposit on the farm, refusing financing on the remaining $36,000 purchase price, which he promised to hand over in cash at the closing, and instructed attorney Matthew Hope to push the deal through before the owner could change his mind.
