Do you think rich people are, somehow, more evil than poor people?
No, of course not. Good and bad people seem to pop up in equal measure in all income brackets, don't they! And most of us, of course, are somewhere in the muddy middle.
That being said, money is power - and money corrupts. Corruption is subtle, you know - it can be as simple as influencing a judge (who happens to be a fellow country club member) to drop a DUI charge against your wife, for example.
And my focus, as a writer of noir fiction, is to try to reveal what's actually going on in our world!
