** spoiler alert ** Sandy Stern, the lawyer for Rusty Sabich in the previous two Turrow books, tries to unravel the why's of his wifes suicide. His son-and seemingly well intentioned foe--or real foe, the neighbor the Dr., his daughterKates husband John, andhis lawyer daughter, all figure into the mystery. The plot is moved along by another plot, Sandy's sister Sylvia, whose husband is a huge trader of commodities, a gambler, and the suspect in many wall street insider trading violatio s. The twists put the enthusiastic, naive son in law, John, the newbietrader as the leading dupe of the bro in law, but is actually himself the criminal. Filled with all of the complexities of a Turrow novel, the information, and truth, is meted out slowly and strategically over the course of the book. Excellent.
