Other People's Money



Fast-talking Wall Street shark Lawrence Garfinkle —also known as “Larry the Liquidator”—has his sights set on taking over the undervalued stock of New England Wire and Cable. It’s up to Kate Sullivan, a determined big-city lawyer, to stop Larry from gutting the company. Can Kate save her hometown’s esteemed business from being conquered by Larry? Loaded with conflict, comedy, and a touch of romance, Other People’s Money delves into the seedy and deceptive world of business.
