Synopsis

Wall Street private investigator Timothy Cone is back in this trio of novellas that plunge into the high-stakes worlds of insider trading, corporate espionage, and cold-blooded murder
Timothy Cone works for an agency that provides “financial intelligence”—and often investigates murder and mayhem, too. In “Run, Sally, Run!,” Timothy Cone investigates insider leaks in a New York investment banking house, and faces the ruthless Sally Steiner, who’s willing to do anything to succeed in a man’s world. “A Case of the Shorts” opens with a bang: The CEO of a powerful Wall Street firm is gunned down in his limo. Cone is dispatched, ostensibly to uncover evidence of industrial sabotage. But what he finds is a simmering hornet’s nest of greed, passion, and betrayal. A Chinese food corporation on the New York Stock Exchange raises red flags in “One From Column A.” When the elderly CEO of White Lotus employs Cone’s company to investigate, Cone is soon tangling with kidnapping, extortion, and the Asian mafia, and it’s hard to tell who’s scamming whom.

The Timothy Files (1987) was bottom-drawer Sanders, and this sequel is even weaker: three heavily padded novellas, all featuring ""the Wall Street dick,"" gawky slob Timothy Cone of Haldering & Co.
