Each part of this novel describes an enormously clever business coup which Wallingford (whose name was originally not Wallingford at all) plans and executes. The character of these business deals is of the most widely varying sort, for Wallingford's desires are anything but limited in range, and his Napoleonic mind is quite able to cope with their accomplishment. Learn how this gentle grafter took his first steps toward getting rich quick!

Book Excerpt

Wix shook his head.

The black-eyed one shrugged his shoulders.
