In this, the fourth installment in the Sam Acquillo series, Sam's past reaches out to pull him back into the world of big money and even bigger egos, where the term "corporate intrigue" is redundant and ambition the only virtue. It seems a woman vital to the private life of a very important person has gone missing in the Hamptons. And it looks like the best way to get her back is to extort the cooperation of Sam Acquillo. After finally achieving some measure of peace and contentment on Long Island, Sam is yet again an accidental player in other people's dramas. It takes him into the world of private security goons, predatory financiers and lifestyles of young hedonists, some brave, some beautiful, all a bit lost. This time Sam has a few ambitions of his own that lead him into something all his battles in the ring and corporate boardrooms could never have prepared him for.

I really didn’t like the plot. Too much business info. That cooled me off from the onset. The whole deal seemed forced, like adding chapters for the sake of beefing up the book. The most interesting thing for me was when Sam visited the house of Zelda. I could have taken more of her antics. Naturally the book would have to have changed premise. But I would have been good with it.
