Summary

The villains who abuse our monetary system get whatís coming to them in this ingenious fifth novel in the critically acclaimed Louis Morgon series, written by cartoonist, painter, and novelist Peter Steiner.

St. John Larrimer is a Wall Street investment banker, a pure capitalist by his own definition. Thanks to the Larrimer Fundís spectacular returns, everyone wants a piece of the action. The only problem is that the whole operation is phony. And with the collapse of the markets and the demise of some of the biggest investment banks, Larrimerís scam is revealed, and he has to skedaddle to his luxurious Caribbean retreat.

Unfortunately for Larrimer, though, Louis Morgon, an old, long ago defrocked CIA operative now living in France, is one of our bad guyís victims. For Louis Morgon injustice is an itch that has to be scratched. And he hatches a clever scheme of his own to bring Larrimer down.

Using some forged paintings as bait and with the invaluable assistance of an Algerian computer wiz, a Newark hair stylist, a fake-English art buyer, Larrimerís former secretary, and a cat named Arthur, Louis Morgan tries to reel in a master crook.

Compelling and complex, The Capitalist is a thriller that will appeal to fans of John le Carre and Graham Greene.
