Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
O'Hara is one of those authors who unfortunately has been nearly forgotten, despite having been a highly popular writer in his day. This 1959 novel follows banking tycoon Alfred Eaton, whose external rise to power is matched by his internal disintegration. This edition includes an introduction by Budd Schulberg. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
