The Crimes of Jordan Wise
A NovelBook - 2006
"Jordan Wise is a mild-mannered accountant with a large San Francisco engineering firm in the late 1970s. By his own admission, the first thirty-four years of his life have been dull and empty. But that all changes when he meets and falls in love with Annalise Bonner, an ambitious young woman who craves exictement, a life on the edge." "With her as the catalyst, Wise concocts and executes a meticulous plan to steal more than half a million dollars from his firm. They escape to the Virgin Islands, but their plans to live a life of quiet luxury are beset by unexpected pitfalls - and Wise is forced to devise and carry out two more ingenious schemes as a result. All three of his crimes are perfect - or are they?"--BOOK JACKET.
