Harry Bingham's Money Makers is a fast-paced business thriller about chicanery and family rivalries; it is also a serious consideration of the ways in which money is made and lost in today's economy. Self-made millionaire Gridley dies, leaving a will that disinherits his wife and daughter and leaves everything to whichever of his three sons has made a million by a three-year deadline. Philosopher Zack becomes a merchant banker with an expertise in international tax avoidance; young Mathew becomes a ruthless trader and increasingly a crook; playboy George lays aside the high life to rescue a dying Yorkshire furniture firm. Along the way, all of them find, and take risks with, true love, and each of them learns hard lessons about what is truly important to them. And their sister Josephine nurses their sick mother and fumes at the way she has been treated... This is an intelligent best-seller, which keeps you turning the pages. Bingham is perceptive about character and the way people change under stress--and for once this is a financial thriller which pays due weight to people who actually make things. -- Roz KaveneyAbout the Author:
