Someone at Chase & Ward had a killer day at the office. Reuben Frost must find out who. Comfortably established at the summit of Wall Street power, the law firm of Chase & Ward numbered among its clients a fair share of Fortune 500 corporations and maintained friendly relations with most of the rest. All the more shocking, then, was the baffling murder of the heir apparent to the Chase & Ward throne. Reuben Frost, no longer active in the firm's day-to-day affairs, makes himself useful as amateur detective. However unlikely it seemed, someone had put poison in the dead partner's water carafe. The dead man's dragon of a secretary had ample opportunity to administer the poison. So did a senior partner in whose light the victim had stood. And so did the husband of the dead man's mistress. Beneath the veneer of confidence that rules in the firm's hallowed halls and luxurious offices, Reuben Frost discovers enough strong passion to motivate half a dozen murders... and one person with the courage to kill.
